Giant Anteater

Image
The giant anteater can be identified by its large size, elongated muzzle and long tail.

It has a total body length of 182–217 cm (5.97–7.12 ft).

Males weigh 33–41 kg (73–90 lb) and females weigh 27–39 kg (60–86 lb), making the giant anteater the largest extant species in its suborder.

The head of the giant anteater, at 30 cm (12 in) long, is particularly elongated, even when compared to other anteaters.

Its tubular snout, which ends in its tiny mouth opening and nostrils, takes up most of its head. Its eyes and ears are relatively small.

It has poor eyesight, but its sense of smell is 40 times more sensitive than that of humans.

He made our visit very friendly and fun and I could not imagine having anyone else as my tour guide. Unfortunately, there was not a lion cub for me to hold, but we made up for it holding several reptiles, and a few different monkeys. I would highly recommend coming here to see the different animals and would highly recommend Michael the tour guide as the leader of the tour!"
