This Baby Is Armored With Cuteness

Well, hello in there! Born in June, this three banded armadillo is now about the size of a tennis ball — after starting out at the size of a golf ball. This little one calls Busch Gardens Tampa home, and was born there to mom Zowie and dad Ollie.

Within the next month or so, the bundle of joy will head out on his own, no longer dependent on mom.
