Diner (4Mb, .mov) and Tamandua, the Sequel (2Mb, .mov)
This anteater was photographed at Fort San Lorenzo in Panama the last week of February 2005. I knew what it was soon as I saw it because it was in my Belize book. In Belize (the book says--we did not see it in that country) it is known as an "ant bear". The animal can be active day or night.
