Photo of the Day: Giant Anteater

6 03 2007

I love Xenarthrids, the giant anteater among my favorites of the group that includes sloths and armadillos as well. This particular critter was being kept along the main path at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, and most years that I visited I never caught a glimpse of it. This past summer, however, the anteater was exceedingly active, darting all about its enclosure (although this made it very hard to photograph). I wasn’t experienced enough with my camera to change the settings in order to get a good shot, so this is the closest unobstructed view I got; hopefully I’ll have a chance to photograph them in a more natural setting someday.
