Introducing the Silky anteater (Cyclopes didactylus), a species of anteaters from Central and South America.
It is a species hardly known, since it lives in trees and is nocturnal; feeds strictly insects, especially ants and termites. They are small like squirrels, move slowly and are docile, although they know how to defend themselves with sharp claws, if necessary. It normally lives on the Ceiba tree that has seed-filled fibers, which facilitates the camouflage with his white coat.
