An Anteater Comes Up for Air

The Pantanal of Brazil is full of strange creatures, none more so than the giant anteater. With very poor eyesight, these creatures rely on their sense of smell to locate not just ants and termites below the surface of the Earth, but also danger and predators. While taking a break from eating at a feverish pace, this anteater raised his head and seemingly without trying matched the tall grass around him as he swung from side to side, smelling for danger.
