Category — Aardvark Updates
We’ve been waiting for Padmae’s bundle of joy for weeks! I stopped asking the keepers if anything was new with her after hearing “still waiting” 20 or 30 times. Today, nursery keeper Dawn Strasser sent me this video update that shows the baby moving!! This is certainly good news…but we’re still waiting!

The most comfortable position for our very pregnant Padmae these days is on her back with her head in nursery keeper Dawn Strasser’s lap! We’re hoping to see a healthy baby aardvark any day now!
Aardvarks give birth to a single offspring (occasionally twins are produced) after a seven-month pregnancy. Youngsters emerge with eyes open and claws fully developed.

Padmae enjoys sleeping on her back and you can now see her “baby bump” if you catch her taking a nap. Another ultrasound is scheduled for tomorrow, so we are hoping to see how the fetus is doing and document the pregnancy for the future. Stay tuned for more updates!
