Animal of the day: Giant anteater🌾⠀
Photo by: @mogenstrolle
This large animal is a close relative to the sloth and can be found in central and south America🌎⠀
Although they are good swimmers and climbers they live mostly on the ground, where they feed on(you guessed it) mostly ants and termites🐜⠀
It finds the ants by following their smell and rips open the nest with it's long claws on the front legs. Then it's sticks it's long and very sticky tongue in the holes and collects the insects. ⠀
They are large animals that can grow 182-217 cm (5.97-7.12 ft) in length and weigh 27-41 kg(60-90 lb)😱⠀
Anteater are mostly active during the night and sleeps during the day, where they dig a shallow cavity lay in🍃⠀
They have a big bushy tail that it uses to cover itself with as it rests curled up in it's hole.⠀
They are a vulnerable species that typically avoid humans, as they have been hunted for their meat for a long time👎⠀

フジオがプールに入ったので、水浴びする?と思ったら

トイレでした😒

Fujio entered the pool.
So, I expected him to bathe.
But he only used the pool as a toilet.

One of my favorite creatures on the planet. So bizarre looking.

@wanderlust.lyn is making new friends in the Pantanal!! #Repost A giant anteater - my new favourite critter other than the jaguar. Extraordinary critters. Sorry about the wire fence - it looked like he was going to come under it but a passing truck startled him and he ran away. I’ve seen several giant anteaters the last few days but this was the biggest (like a small Shetland pony) and the closest. .

Liebe Zahnarme und Fans der Fauna Südamerikas,

seit neustem erkundet auch Bardana die #pampa Leipzigs und vervollständigt so die neue Erlebniswelt Südamerika. 🌎 Die junge Große Ameisenbärin (Myrmecophaga tridactyla) kam letztes Jahr im französischen Zoo @bourbansais in der Bretagne zur Welt und zog im April zu uns. 😍

Wie alle Großen Ameisenbären erschnüffelt sie mit ihrem sehr gut ausgeprägten Geruchssinn Ameisen und andere kleine Insekten. 🐜🐛🐞
.
Für diese myrmekophagische Ernährung (altgriech. "myrmēx" = Ameise + "-phagia" = essen) leckt sie mit ihrer 60 Zentimeter langen, klebrigen und röhrenförmigen Zunge insgesamt 35.000 Insekten pro Tag auf! Ihre klebrige Spaghettizunge schnellt dabei bis zu 160 mal pro Sekunde raus und wieder rein. 😝

Bei uns ist Bardana mit den beiden Mähnenwölfen Santa und Jesus vergesellschaftet. Angst braucht sie vor den beiden Wildhunden allerdings nicht zu haben, da diese sich auf etwas kleinere Beute spezialisiert haben. 😉
.
Cariñosos saludos,
euer #zoolotse Simon 😊

|| G I A N T  A N T E A T E R || Giant anteaters are about the size of a golden retriever and that makes them the biggest of the three existing anteater species.
They might be solitary animals but females will carry their young on their back for up to a year. At around nine months of age, the young begin to fend for themselves, using their large tongue - the longest of any animal relative to its body size, to lap up around 30.000 ants a day. But they've got to be quick at their task because they are not immune to the bites of their favourite grub. Hence, they only spend about a minute at one ant mound before moving on.
Like their relatives- sloths and armadillos, giant anteaters are edentate, meaning they have no teeth. What they do have, however, are sharp claws- up to ten centimetres in lengths, which they use to dig into ant mounds.
Giant anteaters are native to Central and South America where they can be found anywhere from rainforests to grasslands. Having been around for 25 million years, giant anteaters have come under threat in recent years and are now classed as vulnerable with numbers down to a mere 5.000 left in the wild. •
