At a recent trip to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, I had the privilege of visiting this Giant Anteater. I love this animal!
The Giant Anteater feed on ants and termites. According to Mother Nature Network, they are capable of mauling a human if they feel threatened. So it’s probably just as well there was a fence between us and the anteater.
The sedentary animal sharing the pen with him is called a Capybara. He takes the honor of being the world’s largest rodent.
Note to zoo officials: They need a bigger pen.
