NORFOLK --The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk has tweeted out pictures of its newest arrival - a screaming hairy armadillo.

It was born August 18 and parents and baby are doing well.

The zoo says screaming hairy armadillos are found in Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay. They have long wiry hairs and make squealing sounds when threatened.

Officials expect he'll follow in his parent's footsteps, acting as an animal ambassador.

The baby hasn't been named.
