Anteater


How would you like to eat ants for dinner every day?

Ants and termites are the favorite meal of the anteater!

(from: wikipedia - anteater)

Anteaters use their large claws to dig through dirt or tree bark looking for ants,
and when they find them they use their big long tongue to lick up the ants.

They have to lick fast before the ants get away, and they can lick 150 times a minute.
Once the ants get in their mouth, they go right down to their belly because the anteaters don't have any teeth!
