British zoo’s first baby aardvark named for ‘Harry Potter’ elf

UPI – A British zoo announced the facility’s first-ever aardvark birth and unveiled the hairless newborn, which was dubbed Dobby due to its resemblance to the Harry Potter character.

The Chester Zoo in England said staff were “overjoyed” to discover a baby had been born to aardvark mother Oni, eight, and father Koos, six, in the animals’ enclosure.

The zoo said staff won’t know for a few more weeks whether the calf is male or female, but it was tentatively dubbed Dobby due to its resemblance to the hairless, long-nosed house elf from the Harry Potter series.
