A baby aardvark was born last month at the Brookfield Zoo outside Chicago.

The zoo says only 28 of the South African animals can be found at zoos across North America.

The animal doesn't have a name yet, mainly because zookeepers won't know if it's a male or female for at least a year.

The aardvark weighed just five pounds at birth and now tips the scales at 15 pounds.
