Anteater Born in Japanese Zoo

A baby anteater is the newest addition to a Tokyo zoo. The anteater has not been named yet because the staff is unable to determine the gender, though they suspect it’s a boy. Anteaters have no teeth and use their tongues to lick up ants from anthills.  Anteaters are also known for their large claws on their front feet; the claws came in handy for this little anteater as he slipped from his perch.
