Completely redonk.

Anteaters as pets? I didn't know they were so cute!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 01:59 PM

I scrolled through that entire series of photos with my jaw hanging open. O. M. G.

That's so cute - them on a leash is hysterical. But I do hope they are like rescued or something because that is an unusual pet....

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:03 PM

Oh, I want one! But I think my cat would get mad.

Ubercute, until they get a head cold. Then it's off to Costco for the megapack of tissues.

OMG who nu they were sooooo cute and snuggly?

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:05 PM

I have never heard of these animals as pets. He/she certainly looks happy and well cared for!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:06 PM

Oh! Oh! Come to my kitchen! The ants are small, but if you want a snack...
Free ants for ya! Right here. I got 'em. I'm just squishing 'em, what a waste of food!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:11 PM

Tell ya what, you eat my ants, I'll paint your nails! Deal?

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:14 PM

Oooh, they're so long you could put all kinds of fancy designs on them!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:19 PM

Theo, why'd you throw that poor sheep in the water? Don't you know wool shrinks?

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:20 PM

No no, silly. That's only after you throw them in the *dryer*.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:23 PM

Wow. So not cute.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:26 PM

Creepy....and yet, cute. Can't quite put my finger on why.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:27 PM

This thing is tremendously adorable and a bit frightening all in the same shot.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:27 PM


Yeah, awww!

This is cute, but bothersome. Are Anteaters some trendy exotic pet?

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:42 PM

i sure hope they were saved from some sort of danger cause if not then keeping them as pets is just plain wrong. the middle finger claw is quite sizeable hehe

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:44 PM

oh derrh just saw the pics in the gallery from the link Theo provided.. why not take the remaining teeny bit of their dignity? don't like this. they probably dream of termite hills and no human to be seen anywhere near.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:48 PM

I'll paint ants, on your nails! Ah, bad idea. OK, you know black would look mahvelous. Do you like to listen to Streisand?
Peeps are trying to comprehend you by the way. I'm personally cool with the proboscis thing.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:49 PM

Very odd to see them as a pet, but if it was raised to be domestic, I just hope it has access to live out its natural behaviors! I'll give the owner the benefit of the doubt and just focus on how CUTE this lil guy or gal is!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:52 PM

Anerabuhls. Bettur inza furrust uv reign, tho.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 02:58 PM

Unbearably CUTE. But must be A LOT OF WORK!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:04 PM

Very, very strange. I'm glad someone has found a critter to love and take care of. Love that pic of the tam snorgling the arm.

P.S. Not sure if this is right or wrong? Read the link Teho included before making a comment.

Why the long face? ;-------)

I want to rent this McSchnoz to come to my kitchen and hoover up all the ants that are infesting.

Then he can romp in the yard where they come from. Moar ants than he could ever eat.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:28 PM

The snuggling picture (#4) made me totally squee! OMG, so cuuuute!

Yay for cute unusual animals!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:28 PM

Anybody else kinda freaked out by the big schnozzles? And no Freudian analysis, please. Sometimes a schnozzle is just a schnozzle... a big scary schnozzle perched above some righteously frightening nails.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:33 PM

Look at the silvery fur! So pretty! These are rather adorable. Coulda used a few at my old college apartment--it took spraying, obsessive cleaning and a bunch of "ant hotels" to chase the little buggers out.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:41 PM

see that i got so excited i posted it twice!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:42 PM

This bothers me. She took in the animal because it was "too weak to survive in the wild", but she bought it. She is not a licensed rehabilitator and seems to have no intention of returning the animal to the wild. Yes, it is just an animal, but it looks plenty healthy right now and should not be kept as a pet.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:43 PM

This went from: "not so sure it's cute" to "redonkulous cute" (snuggling next to arm, making circles by playing kissy face with anteater 2) to "cute but kind of disturbing" (big claws protruding from blankie, extra close up of snouty-ness) to "kill me dead cute" (anteater trying to act like my cats on laptop and in my purse).

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:46 PM

Reminds me of "The Doubtful Guest" by Edward Gorey.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:47 PM

I think it rather silly to say they dream of being far from people when one is shown hugging a people. It does show them getting outside too.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:49 PM

Oh nos! So not cute!

 |  May 15, 2008 at 03:57 PM

Yes, it is just an animal, but it looks plenty healthy right now and should not be kept as a pet.

Healthy AND acclimated to humans. Maybe she might be better off in a zoo (and maybe not), but the wild is probably not a good place for her anymore (especially since "the wild" would involve overseas shipping).

I wouldn't get an anteater from the wild, though--it's more likely she got sick after she was caught or during travel.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 04:16 PM

Yep, the buzzkillers are soapboxing.
[gets out muh schoolmarm glasses]
**Well-cared for** domesticated wild animals live three times longer than their wild cousins, and don't die of parasites, starvation or murder by predators. It's not in a too-small cage, cuz it's PADDLING IN THE CREEK AND CLIMBING AN APPLE TREE, AND I'M NOT!!
So chillz, pills, if you want to anthropormorphise [I see your lips moving] dig the contented hexpression on the honkshuing eatanter.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 04:16 PM

Well, that's certainly not fair. Someone has TWO anteaters (apparently, anyway, according to the photos), and I have NONE. None anteaters in my house. So not fair. (shakes head despairingly)

My sister's cat is a blob
 |  May 15, 2008 at 04:17 PM

"Snorf" is one of my new favorite words.

That's all I've got.

 |  May 15, 2008 at 04:22 PM

First thing in the morning my cat sticks his cold nose in my ear-- I shiver to think of this beastie trying that!
