If you ever take the time to think about it, anteaters have some pretty cool adaptations. Anteaters live in Central and South America, except for Guatemala, Uruguay,and El Salvador. They have long and shaggy fur. Their tongue is two feet long, and their tail can range from two to three feet. Their snouts are kind of like a very long tube filled with nothing but a two foot tongue. But due to climate change, anteaters will have to change! Their long pretty hair will be short and choppy. They will also have to grow four sharp teeth and a much shorter snout. Their new webbed feet will help them swim to what is left of the tropical rainforest and soon a swamp. It will be a long and rocky road for our furry friends but they will persevere no matter what, not even global warming can stop them.
