We're So Delighted to Meet Delilah

She might be a giant anteater, but baby Delilah hasn’t quite reached giant status yet.

The adorable pup was born at the end of September at the Palm Beach Zoo and weighed three pounds. Six weeks later, she weighed in at a not-quite-whopping six pounds. So, she’s got a lot more growing to do before she lives up to her species’ name.

Until she’s all grown up, Delilah will spend a lot of time bonding with her mom, Odelia. For for the next nine months to a year, the pup will ride on her mother’s back. Now that's motherly love.
