Amazin' Amazon Mystery Animals
Mystery Animal #12 - Answer: Anteater
Anteaters have no
teeth and very weak jaws and, therefore, cannot chew. Instead, they just
slurp and swallow - mostly ants and termites. Some kinds of anteaters climb
trees to find their wriggly meals - but the one in the picture, the giant
anteater, always stays on the forest floor. It has a long bushy tail which
it uses like a blanket when sleeping.
