Baby aardvark drinks from a bottle, makes kangaroo friend

Just in time for Mother's Day Julie Scardina, Seaworld Busch Gardens Animal Ambassador, brought by some baby animals that only a mother could love. Like a seriously adorable six-week old baby aardvark, who was sweetly bottle-fed by Kathie Lee.


There was also a mama kangaroo with her baby sticking out of her pouch (!), a fuzzy little emu chick, and, just to delight Hoda, some mother-and-child scorpions.


Julie pointed out that mama scorpions carry their babies on their backs for 7-9 months. 

"And they'll never get a thank-you note," said KLG.
