Anteater - Nosy Crow Skip to content

Titled ‘True portrait of the she-antbear’, this is an etching of an anteater by a Spanish artist named Andrés de la Muela, made in 1776. Anteaters eat ants with their long nose and long tongue that they can poke into ants’ nests. They eat about 30,000 ants and termites a day.
