Adopt an Anteater

Anteaters can be found in South and Central America along the banks of rivers and in the depths of the humid forests. Anteaters have no teeth and use their long tongues to lap up thousands of ants and termites each day. Small spikes on their tongue help keep the ants and other insects on their tongues while they get swept into the anteater's mouth. Anteaters have poor eyesight and locate hills or mounds of insects by their keen sense of smell. Some anteaters will also search for insects in trees traveling from branch to branch. A full-grown anteater can eat upwards of 30,000 ants and termites a day. These animals are generally solitary and tend not to be aggressive in nature but can be fierce if cornered and will defend themselves with their sharp claws. Adopt an anteater today!
