Anteaters are the four mammal species
of the suborder Vermilingua commonly
known for eating ants and termites.
Together with the sloths, they compose
the order Pilosa. The name "anteater" is also colloquially
applied to the unrelated aardvark, numbat,
echidna, and pangolin.
The anteater has an elongated snout.
The sticky substance of its tongue traps insects.
It eats up to 30,000 ants, termites and other
insects each day.
The claws of the anteater's front feet are hooked
backward and serve the animal for ripping into
ant and termite nests.

The giant anteater is an insect-eating mammal
with long fur, a bushy tail and a long tubular snout.
Females typically give birth to a single pup,
which both parents feed and care for.
The pup is born a miniature version of its parents
and spends about a year riding on its mother's back.
