Wildlife of Panama
Tamandua is a genus of anteaters
with two species: the southern
tamandua (T. tetradactyla) and the
northern tamandua (T. mexicana).
They live in forests and grasslands,
are semiarboreal, and possess
partially prehensile tails. They
mainly eat ants and termites, but
they occasionally eat bees, beetles,
and insect larvae. They also eat
small vertebrate prey, such as
lizards, rodents, small birds,
birds' eggs, and crocodile eggs. For more
