Giant Anteater

Animal Facts

Anteaters have no teeth and their tongues are about 2 feet long. They can flick their tongue in and out of their mouths up 150 times per minute, which makes eating ants a breeze! 

Anteaters can weigh between 60-100 lbs. 

Wild anteaters average 14 years old and under human care up to mid-20's.
