Virginia Zoo Welcomes New Baby Screaming Hairy Armadillo

Posted: Updated:
NORFOLK, Va. (WRIC) -

The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk is welcoming a new baby "screaming hairy armadillo" to their family.

The little guy was born last Monday. Screaming hairy armadillos are found in Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay. They have long wiry hairs and make squealing sounds when threatened.

When he grows up, he'll be used as an animal ambassador to educate the public.
