Mochila “Mooch”

Giant Anteater Mooch is a 16-year-old Giant anteater. Giant Anteaters have two-foot-long tongues and no teeth. They use the hard roof of their mouth to smash up their food, and have very sticky spit to help them keep insects on their tongue. Giant Anteaters eat a collection of insects and fruits. A Giant Anteater’s tail is just as long as their body, which makes it a perfect blanket when they are laying down. Mooch in particular loves to dig holes in his exhibit and snack on avocados and bananas!
