Our newest species of anteater, the Southern tamandua, recently received an enrichment of honey inside a clear plastic tube. You can find out more about this new species in our last blog post about this interesting animal, including a video of his first day on exhibit.
In the video below you can see his prehensile tail in action and how he uses his very long tongue and sticky saliva to get all the honey. Or view the tamandua enrichment video on Youtube.
