Anteater Born in Japanese Zoo

A baby anteater is the newest addition to a Tokyo zoo. The anteater has not been named yet because the staff is unable to determine the gender, though they suspect it’s a boy. Anteaters have no teeth and use their tongues to lick up ants from anthills.  Anteaters are also known for their large claws on their front feet; the claws came in handy for this little anteater as he slipped from his perch.

  1. This video is so cute. It would be so much fun to hold that little baby. I loved the part when it fell off the ledge it was sad but funny.
