Aardvark Baby Watch


Padmae on Dawn’s lap

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.
