He may be tiny now but just you watch! This cuteness will explode into GIANT CUTENESS!!!

The Warsaw Zoo is celebrating the newest addition to the anteater fam as he is the fourth little one to come from the zoo's mating pair.

Giant anteaters are born blind so they get to ride on mama's back. This not only provides easy and fun transportation, but also excellent camouflage.

But, this kiddie won't be a mama's boy for long. After 10 months, giant anteaters are fully independent.

Better make it last, Mom! They grow up FAST!

And it's called Ketchup!!!! Ok, maybe not…LOLz!

Corndog, an anteater at Roger Williams Park Zoo, delivered her first child April 5th.

Staffers say the pup is healthy and Corndog gave birth right on schedule. The pup will stay on mama's back for most of its first year of life and soon, Corndog will be able venture around freely.

Giant anteaters are listed as a "vulnerable" species so seeing a babe from the resident female is good news for the zoo and the species!

Congratulations on being a new mama, Corndog!
