The coolest dude among all animals!
The Tamandua (Tamandua tetradactyla) is a smaller specie of anteaters and are closely related to sloths and armadillos. Owners say that the Tamandua are the ‘perfect’ anteaters; just the right size, and just the right amount of attitude.
By looking at the pictures it seems they know how special they look, and don't mind posing in sweaters and other handmade clothes. According to owners they know how to open windows, drawers, cabinets and containers and they respond to their name.
The downside to owning this pet is that they like tearing things up and will use their long claws on almost anything, including your furniture. They also need to follow a very strict and diet. And they come with a hefty price tag of approximately $4500.
Tamanduas are very loving, but just like cats, they tend to 'let you' love them.
