CINCINNATI -- If you didn't know that aardvarks can be adorable, consider this a lesson.

Meet the zoo's newest baby, a male aardvark.

Ali the aardvark gave birth on Dec. 21, according to the Cincinnati Zoo's Facebook page.

The baby's birth weight -- three pounds -- is in the normal weight range for a newborn aardvark, the zoo's post said.

For now, mama and baby will be "cuddling behind the scenes" at the zoo, the post said.
