Paraguay: Norbert's giant anteater...Myrmecophaga tridactyla (endangered)

Paraguay: Norbert's giant anteater...Myrmecophaga tridactyla (endangered) 

In the Paraguayan Chaco, Norbert, a Mennonite farmer, had a young, hand reared giant anteater at his ranch, and took us to meet it. It ate meat from my hand with its long, sticky tongue! The claws are evry dangerous.Their eyesight is poor, but sense of smell is keen. We had seen a huge wild one earlier in the day in the wilderness.
