Bone Clones® Giant Anteater Skull Cast (Replica), BC-011
14.0" x 2.5" x 2.5"
The giant anteater, found in Central and South America, has a very distinctive appearance, high-lighted by its curved, tubular snout. It reaches lengths of more than 7 feet and weights beyond 80 pounds. Toothless, this gray diurnal mammal feeds by extending its sticky, worm-like tongue up to two feet into termite nests or anthills, drawing the insects into its mouth at the rate of 150 times a minute. When threatened, it stands on its rear legs, using its long, bushy tail for balance, and strikes at its foe with its powerful forelimbs that are accentuated with long, strong claws. 1-part skull (jaw glued to cranium).
