    Born June 21, the baby was the size of a golf ball, now a month later he has grown to be the size of a tennis ball. When full grown adult Three Banded Armadillo’s are roughly the size of a softball. The youngster can be seen in Jambo Junction.
     


    Some fun armadillo facts courtesy of Busch Gardens Tampa.

    The gestation period for a Three Banded Armadillo is just 120 days!
    The young will nurse for about 72 days before being weaned.
    Baby armadillos are born blind but quickly develop the ability to walk and close their shell.
    After 72 days baby armadillos are no longer dependent on mom and will go out on their own.


    Baby and mom, Zowie, enjoy some outdoor romping in the grass.
