PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — There was more than one reason to be thankful this year at Roger Williams Park Zoo.

Zoo officials said they welcomed a baby tamandua to their family recently.

The Zoo announced the birth on Facebook Thursday. The baby is named Franklin in memory of his late father Frankie.

Franklin and his mom, Carina, are both doing well and are bonding behind-the-scenes.
