A sample from a longer article on Giant Anteaters:
by Brooke Reedlunn
Most of us hate when ants come to the picnic, but for these guys ants ARE the picnic. Ant- eaters are amazing and strange animals that walk the grassy plains of South and Central America.They look so odd because they are specially adapted to eat ants and termites! They have long claws that help them to break into hard termite mounds and anthills. They have long sticky tongues that can flick back and forth 150 times per minutes. They have black and white fur to help them blend into the grasses where they live.
