“Little Schnozzy”

It’s been almost a full month since our first baby anteater was born at the National Zoo to Momma Giant Anteater, Maripis. This is exciting, not only because we can’t expect a baby panda every year like last year, but also because these animals eat up to 30,000 insects daily! Besides, the zoo has once again asked for our help. What will the little “sucker” be named?

Little Schnozzy has been the most popular, but as others are quick to point out, he won’t be little for very long. The other suggestions sound mostly hispanic… which is appropriate since the natural habitat for the giant anteater is Central and South America.
