Screaming Hairy Armadillo Pups Born at Smithsonian's National Zoo
Two screaming hairy armadillo pups were born at the Zoo Aug. 8. The pups are the second litter for mom Amber and dad Dylan Walter. At their last weigh-in they were nearly three ounces. Their eyes are closed, but usually open between 16 and 30 days of age. The pups are doing well and visitors can see them at the Small Mammals House when they are a little older. They have been living in an off-exhibit nest with their mom since their birth.
