Anteaters are solitary creatures and are related to sloths and armadillos. They have a long thin tongue that extends longer than the length of their heads. Their long tube-like mouth has lips but no teeth. They use their large curved fore claws to tear open ant hills and termite mounds. We're loving Enrike Leekya's rendition of this awesome animal, carved of a lovely piece of Picasso marble, about 3 1/4" long, 1" wide and 1 7/8" tall. He inlaid sweet eyes of turquoise plus a turquoise nose, and a red coral tongue.
