Anteaters are animals from "The Wild Thornberrys"


There are three types of anteaters:

Giant Anteater: Gray with a black stripe on the neck.

Tamandua: Yellowish white with a black stripe on the shoulders, back, and neck.

Silky Anteater: Whitish gray.


In Real Life

Anteaters have no teeth, but they have 2-foot long tongues for eating 30,000 ants and termites a day. Anteaters walk on their knuckles to keep their claws sharp for digging into anthills and termite nests. Anteaters can carry their young on their backs until the young are old enough to take care of themselves. Silky Anteaters, Tamanduas, and Giant Anteaters are found only in South America.
