Busch Gardens is celebrating the arrival of its newest resident, an adorable baby armadillo.
The tiny Southern three-banded armadillo was born on April 27.
It is the second baby born to mother "Zowie" and father "Ollie", who live in Jambo Junction in the Nairobi section of Busch Gardens theme park.
The baby was able to walk and roll into a ball within moments of its birth.
Southern three-banded armadillos are the only species of armadillo that can roll up into a ball.
The baby armadillo currently weighs 118 grams, which is about the weight of a cell phone.
Busch Gardens will be holding a special "gender reveal" party at 2:45 p.m. on Friday, May 2. The party will be held at the Animal Care Center Nutrition Kitchen.
