from @institutojurumi - #TamanduaDay @mnzoo - Put your hands in the air if you’re a #tamandua! It's #WorldTamanduaDay & Tupi couldn't be more excited! Tamanduas, or lesser anteaters, can be found in Mexico, Central and South America. They are considered the "lesser ant eater" only due to their size, in our hearts-they're considered great. They use their sticky 16 inch tongue (!) to eat insects in anthills & termite mounds. These little critters can eat up to 9,000 insects a day, going from 50-90 different nests/hives to find what they’re looking for.

📌November 29th - World Tamandua Day! Repost from @endextinctionintl - Post by @zookeeperrick 🐾 ・・・ Happy #WorldTamanduaDay! What? You don't know what a #Tamandua is? Well, let me bring you up to speed... They are also known as a lesser #anteater. (But we don't think anything less of them. That just means they're smaller than the giant anteaters.) There are countless #AnimalFacts about tamanduas, but lets focus on those feet. The front feet have a very big claw in the middle and they have very powerful muscles attached to those claws. They use these awesome adaptations to tear open rotting trees and termite mounds to get to the yummy eggs and larva of the termite and/or ant colony they are digging up. And how about that row of short hooked claws on the back feet? They are perfect for hooking into a tree as they climb. And get this! They can rotate their back feet 180 degrees. So when they climb out of a tree, head down, they can still use those short hooked claws to help them climb down. #wildlifeeducation #animalfact #toes #claws #littlestinker #cute #cuteoverload #cuteface #awesomeanimal #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeseekers #sandiegozoo #safaripark #sdzoo #natgeo #tamanduas #uniqueanimals #nowyouknow

Hoje se comemora o Dia Mundial do Tamanduá. Este dia foi criado há menos de cinco anos e foi escolhido para lembrar a importância desses animais que são tão diferentes e tão parecidos ao mesmo tempo, este dia também está ligado à preservação do Cerrado, por ser o habitat principal da espécie. No mundo existem onze espécies de tamanduás, nove delas são exclusivas da América Latina e estão presentes no Brasil. A caça irregular e a perda de habitat são as principais ameaças enfrentadas pelas espécies, além do alto índice de atropelamentos nas estradas (principalmente do Tamanduá-bandeira, que é a espécie mais ameaçada). | No canto superior esquerdo está a menor espécie de Tamanduá do mundo, o Tamanduaí (Cyclopes sp), com sete espécies diferentes, sendo seis delas recentemente descobertas, que pesam cerca de 400g e medem no máximo 45 centímetros. Abaixo dele está o Tamanduá-bandeira (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), que pode pesar até 40kg e medir 1,90m, sendo a maior espécie. E no canto direito temos o Tamanduá-mirim (Tamandua tetradactyla), que é a espécie mais comum de todas, podendo pesar até 7kg e medir até 77cm. 😍🌎 #worldtamanduaday #GEASUNIME

Happy World Tamandua Day from our little anteater family! EJ, our big papa, DJ, our sweet mom, and their crazy offspring, little CJ, all call the Staten Island Zoo Home. With their 16 inch long tongues and hook like claws, they are well-adapted for digging and slurping up all the bugs they can find. Tamanduas are known as the “ lesser anteater” due to their small size - but in our hearts, they are larger than life 🐜❤️ #worldtamanduaday #lesseranteater #bugsallaround #sleepytime #cuddlebuddies #happyfamily

@pacificanimalproductions

Happy #WorldTamanduaDay to this guy! Hoover the Tamandua represents these ant loving creatures well. With hook like claws & a prehensile tail they move with ease thru the tree tops of the southern part of South America. Also a 14inch long toungue helps to slurp up all the ants & termites he can eat. Share this post & help us celebrate one of Nature’s cool critters. #Tamandua #LesserAnteater #Ants #Antsinmypants

It’s World Tamandua Day! A perfect day to celebrate our lesser anteaters. ____________________________________ Here are 10 facts about tamanduas: 🐜 • They are part of the anteater family and like the name suggests they usually eat ants or termites in the wild 🐜 • They are native to South America 🐜 • They have no teeth! One of the few mammals that can’t bite you 🐜 • They have a long, flexible tongue, that reaches about 40cm long! 🐜 • They have poor eyesight and hearing but a great sense of smell 🐜 • They have a prehensile tail which is used like a 5th limb 🐜 • They’re primarily arboreal but will also forage on the ground 🐜 • Their fur is thick and coarse to protect them from angry ants 🐜 • They have 4 toes on their front feet, where the 3rd toe has a extremely long claw. This means they have to walk on the outside edges of their feet so they don’t stab themselves 🐜 • Tamandua’s main defence isn’t their claws but their smell! They secrete a putrid reek from their anal glands to let animals know where they are

#ToeTuesday on #WorldTamanduaDay wouldn't be complete without a post about the truly fascinating front claws of the #tamandua! These oversized front claw are used for climbing, defense and for tearing open trees, ant-hills and termite mounds. The forearms of the tamandua are thick with muscle to add power to the large claws. And to help prevent these big claws from becoming dull, the tamandua walks with their toes curled in, using thick pads on the "wrist" to walk on. #WildlifeEducation #SanDiegoZoo #safaripark #zookeeper #anteater #WorldAnteaterDay #Animalfact
