This cute, hairless critter was rejected by his mother immediately after she gave birth to him in 2011 at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Fla., so zookeepers stepped in to care for the little guy. Young aardvarks typically remain underground with their mothers for a few weeks after birth, and they’re fully weaned in about 16 weeks.Check out our gallery of adorable rescued zoo babies.
