Giant Anteater Slurps Some Snacks

Check out this video of Zola the giant anteater slurping up some snacks! Anteaters’ jaw bones are unlike other mammals.  Anteaters cannot open their mouths wide because their jaw bones are fused together.  So the only way that they can eat is by sticking out their long, sticky tongue. You can see Zola’s jaw and tongue muscles working to lick up the treats in these enrichment tubes!
