Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium keepers have named the one-month-old tamandua pup Liana. She was born behind the scenes at the Zoo on April 23 to mom Terra. Liana means a woody climbing plant that hangs from trees. The name is fitting as tamanduas are excellent climbers, using their long prehensile tails for balance and support.
A public debut for Liana has not yet been set — she will make appearances once she’s a bit older, according to PDZA.
