The San Francisco Zoo is welcoming its newest resident -- a baby giant anteater.

The zoo does not yet know baby's gender. It was born on December 22 and will ride on its mother's back for the next year.

This is the first giant anteater born at San Francisco Zoo in 10 years.

It will grow to be about eight feet long.

There is no word yet on when the public can see the new baby.
