Fun Facts

Anteater is a common name for the four extant mammal species of the suborder Vermilingua (meaning “worm tongue”) commonly known for eating ants and termites. The individual species have other names in English and other languages. Together with the sloths, they are within the order Pilosa. The name “anteater” is also colloquially applied to the unrelated aardvark, numbat, echidnas, pangolins and some members of the Oecobiidae.

The anteaters are more closely related to the sloths than they are to any other group of mammals. Their next closest relations are armadillos. There are four extant species in three genera:

Giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla)
Silky anteater (Cyclopes didactylus)
Northern (Tamandua mexicana) and southern tamandua (Tamandua tetradactyla)
