Video: This baby anteater can't stop cuddling with her teddy bear

Aww.

Baby animals are adorable. Especially when they can't stop cuddling with a stuffed animal.

Beanie, a baby giant anteater, was born at the ZSL London Zoo this week, the zoo says. But her inexperienced, first-time mom rejected her, so zookeepers gave her a teddy bear to act as a surrogate mom until Beanie gets old enough to be with the rest of the zoo's giant anteaters.

Here's the adorable video of Beanie cuddling with the stuffed bear.
