|Giant Anteater||Nexon Game|
Giant Anteater is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.
Giant Anteater has brown eyes, with very long gray hair that fades to dark gray towards her bangs and has a big black black with white border on each side, starting from the roots and ending on a thing line towards the tips. Her animal characteristics are shown with the pair of round animal ears and an animal tail of very big size. She wears a pair of hair clips with a purple jewel, giving them the appearance of eyes resting on her hair, and a white lace hair ornament, similar to a headband, tied with a big bow on the center that has both ends of the lace resting on her head.
Giant Anteater wears a frilled white shirt with puffed wide sleeves, held tight by black wrist bands, a big black fur collar bow tie, a pair of black gloves, and a black underbust bodice with frontal laces and a frilled bottom. She wears a black fur wide circular skirt, black leggings and white Mary Jane platform shoes with a small bow on the upper strap.
In Real Life
Giant anteaters walk on their knuckles to protect their long, sharp claws they use to dig into anthills. They will eat around 30,000 ants and termites every day but they will never completely empty a mound so the colony can recover until they return. Due to the low nutritional value of their diet and their large size, giant anteaters move very slowly and sleep about 16 hours per day.
Giant anteaters are solitary and, after leaving their mother's care, will not interact with others of their species except to mate. Their breeding season ranges from March to May. The gestation period is about half a year before a single infant is born. The infants will be on their own after another nine months. Until then, the mother will carry them on her back to appear larger and more intimidating for potential predators. They are almost blind but their sense of smell is very strong.
Giant anteaters are vulnerable to habitat loss caused by humans as well as forest fires. They are protected by law throughout their habitat though they are still hunted illegally for food or as pests. There are only an estimated 5,000 giant anteaters left in the wild.
- They often use their own tail as a blanket
