Yum Yum! Watch how our Giant anteater Romy gobbles down her mealworm treats with her 2ft long tongue!
This fab video shows the latest enrichment activity keepers set up for the three-year-old female by putting mealworms into a plastic bottle to mimic how they’d eat from a termite mound in the wild.
Keeper Josh Luxton said: “Anteaters have no teeth, so use their long tongues to eat their food, which in the wild would typically be more than 30,000 ants and termites a day.
“But as you can see, Romy wastes no time in devouring the mealworms by licking the bottle clean with just a few quick swishes of her tongue.”
