This Anteater was spotted in Costa Rica during one of my birding trips.
When I am on a break, I sometimes visit other places to expand my horizon. One of the activities I enjoy the most is birding abroad. Seeing other types of birds or the same I already know, but in a different environment. While I was visiting the Corcovado National Park (Osa Peninsula) I met this little creature too; the Lesser Anteater (Tamandua tetradactyla)
This Lesser Anteater was spotted in a tree with a lot of branches. At first it was a bit far, so we first looked at it via a telescope. After a while it came closer, so we were able to use our own camera's.
I remember that it was also a rainy day, explaining why its fur was also a bit fuzzy. This Lesser Anteater is also known as a Collared Anteater (the black fur almost resembling a coat on it). They say that the Lesser Anteaters are nocturnal animals, but we spotted this one near lunchtime. Must have been our lucky rainy day.
But minutes later, it fell asleep. Right above us. Nap time, I guess.
