The long-snouted, bushy tailed anteater is one of the most curious animals in all nature. Giant anteaters walk on the knuckles of their front feet to protect the long, sharp claws that they use to dig for ants and especially termites. After they tear into nests, they will use their 10 inch long tongue to probe deeply for food. Their black stripes are surprisingly effective camouflage and guide their young to cling to their back as they do in the first months of life. Their South American habitat is endangered by the logging of native forests.
