Beady-eyed baby anteater action

Check out this little beady-eyed wonder, borned in a Japanese zoo. There is no ant-slurping in the video, but he does do some quality squealing and clinging-to-Mom’s-back action…

Robin C., it’s hard to go wrong with a schnozzle like that.

  2. 0:52-1:00 is way too much!! Cannot stop laughing!!!

  3. 260Oakley says:

    Wow, that little mcsnozzleson really ups the ant-y in the cuteness stakes.

  4. D’aww…when the baby got put down, he put his…paws?…up and TOTALLY made an “UP!” noise. Reminds me of tots I used to babysit. “UP! UP!”

  5. The squealing is all like “Mom? MOM!…WOAH, Mooom!”

  6. Holy Nellie!!!! this is really over the top of the Kyuooteniss-Meter…………………………..Ding, Ding, Ding!!!!! O Noooooes!! The KM just seylfe-destruktid………! :shock:

  7. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    One of these days I want to see an anteater nursing…….

  8. kibblenibble says:

    Baby anteater noises FTW!

  9. I think I need an anteater to keep the ants out of my kitchen. Much cuter than bug spray.

  10. puddlepeppers says:

    I must be the only one thinks mama and baby look like they’re wearing overalls.

  11. awwww! when it came close to falling off the chair it was *almost* as cute as the little jerboa falling off the scale!!

  12. Why don’t *I* have adorable anteaters climbing all over me? I would totally let them!

  13. Poohbear says:

    Sweeeeet !!!! back clinging and squawkkking !

    However, I’m wondering at what point momma and bebeh got wind of THIS swimsuit fashion :

  14. Now I know what sound an anteater makes: “Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!” They’re like little Joey Russos

  15. jess e. says:

    Eeeee! The squeaking! It’s so “Where’s my mom? This is untoward!”
    And strong arms when he catches himself falling off the table! I gasped out loud.

  16. Melissa H. says:

    I think they look like they’re wearing oldey-timey swimsuits, myself. I love that perfect V down their backs.

  17. Aw, I didn’t realize anteaters are so cute! Beats a can of Raid any day! So glad there was a hand to catch the little guy when he tumbled off the chair!

  18. stphjay says:

    the babby is adorable but so is the adult!

  19. Blondie says:

    OMG, how cute is that! When he fell off the table and squeeked out a “WHOA!” I couldn’t help but laugh at the little guy.

  20. puddlepeppers says:

    Yes, old-timey swimsuits! With their builds, they would also look great
    in muscle shirts and cargo shorts.l

  21. bahaha finally one of my submissions has made it to cuteoverload =)

  22. kodalai says:

    Got to put in my “awww!” for the stuffed anteater doll they use to transport the baby around… ;)

  23. Now that’s what ya call Snorgle-City.

  24. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    My favourite bit has to be weighing the baby on the cuddly anteater toy to give it something to cling onto. I love the thought that they would have had to weigh the cuddly toy on its own as well. :D

  25. Von Zeppelin says:

    The audio says the baby is not yet named, until they figure out whether it’s a boy or a girl. I suggest Schnozzwald if male, Nosalind if a girl.

  26. I like how they’re trying to climb someone who’s just standing around.

  27. Insane in the extended nasal membrane!

  28. PS :shock:

  29. fawn lust says:

    so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o cute!

  30. Headtail says:

    Look mom! No hanz………..WOAH!

  31. awwwwwwww… my favourite part is when it crawled on the back of the stuffed animal one! Did it think it was mom? Poor gai!

  32. LizzyCat says:

    lol @ Momma Anteater climbing the zoo dude!

  33. binky-mama says:

    Love the falling off the table act-shons and the “Halp meh!” squeeksies. :)

  34. chanpon says:

    No fair, why wasn’t he there when I last visited this aquarium? :sob:

    So much cute splay-age, cute chirping, and trying to stand up in that video for the win!! I nearly died when he almost got knocked off mom’s back as she crawled into the tight box (“Low bridge, Mom!!”)

  35. :)! Awwwww. I didn’t know they clung to mom’s back like that.

    Adorables. But my face went D:! when he nearly fell off that chair.

  36. That made me day! SO CUTE!

  37. OMG, just OMG !

  38. omg leetle babeh anteater!!
    “A genuine anteater,”
    The pet man told my dad.
    Turned out, it was an aunt eater,
    And now my uncle’s mad!

  39. *gasp* Where can I sign up to have anteaters climb on to meeeeeee?
    OMG I gasped when bebeh anty almost fell! Poor lil bebeh!

  40. puddlepeppers says:

    LisaL…Can we form an anteaters fan club? We might could get privileges at
    a local zoo. a-e climbers welcome. We can invite chanpon for missing-out at
    the aquarium…

  41. @Katie totally agree with you. She look like she’s crying out for mama~

    *Waoah! woah! Mama! i want my mama! Where are you?!*

    Totally adorable! XD

  42. Aaaaaawww!! PRECIOUS! Didn’t want to be alone on that chair either! I wanted to catch the poor bebe when s/he fell off! I want one now!

  43. Felicityanne says:

    An anteater in an aquarium? What next, a Koi carp in a petting zoo?!

  44. OMG. The squealing is just soooo sweet. Give it its mum, for pete´s sake! :D

  45. Anyone know what zoo or aquarium this is? I live in Tokyo and I need more of this in my life. The ‘whoa’ sound he made when he nearly fell off the chair KILLED me.

  46. Duh, it says Sunshine international aquarium right at the beginning. I should watch twice before I ask questions. OOps.

  47. What a sweetheart! That little guy is so unsure on his feet. But I am sure about one thing: he’s cute!

  49. Kissyfur says:

    Baby anty should not be out explorin by itself. It should stay home wit da momma where its safe. Somebody giv hem a mini snikers to munch on.

  50. They are like storybook crescent moon faces.

  51. rubber duck says:

    Aww. This was me watching the part where they put the baby on the table(?) and it gets all anxious:

    Baby: Squeak!
    Me Squeak!
    Baby Squeak!
    Me: Squeak!
    Baby: SQUEAK!
    Me: SQUEAK!!!

    …and that was a completely involuntary reaction!

  52. Blueindy says:

    So strange, but so cute!

  53. Oh my gosh. I nearly started crying from the cuteness!!!

  54. Those overalls it’s wearing are redonkulous! Where do you even find overalls for anteaters?

  55. bunnywabbit says:

    I’ve always wanted an anteater since I was a little kid. So I got a whippet instead.
