Giant Anteater Kisses!

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Here we have one of our recent additions to ZWF. Our new Giant Anteater that still needs a name! She was greeting me this morning and came right up to me and started licking me to say hello! As you can see, Giant Anteaters have long tongues which they use to collect ants and termites. Keep checking back for updates and more photos on how this beautiful new addition is doing! If you want to try to come up with a name for her, then please leave a comment for us on what you think her name should be!
