Schleich - Giant Anteater. The body of the giant anteater is almost completely covered with sharp scales that overlap each other. These protect it against the sharp claws of leopards and hyenas. With their long, curved claws, they burrow into ant and termite hills in order to dig out the animals and eat them with relish. Sometimes they also pull off the bark from trees in order to get to the insects lying underneath. Since giant anteaters don't have any teeth, they collect their prey using their long, sticky tongue and swallow them whole.
