Anteater is a distant cousin of the sloth and the pangolin lives in Central and South America. There are several varieties of anteaters, some are small and climb trees, others are large and only go on the ground. First we will draw a giant anteater. It is named  so for good reason – if you count with a tail, he can be more than two meters in length!

As you can see drawing of the anteater we are not just going to draw a few lines on a clean sheet, but we will realize a clear image by using crib.

Well, draw the line of back. The head is inclined to the ground, the back is a gentle arc, the tail is directed parallel to the ground

Anteater`s legs (and whole body) are covered with stiff long hair. Therefore we can not draw the folds in joints. But note – with hind legs anteater comes on foot, but on forepaws claws are so powerful they interfere walking and the anteater bends them, he leans while walking on the backhand.

Anteater has a strong neck and a long tapered head with small eyes and ears. Nostrils and tiny mouth are at the end of the muzzle. The mouth is of such magnitude that only to stick out a long sticky tongue which adhere termites and ants – the food of anteaters. But now the anteater walks, and does not hunt and the tongue is retracted in the mouth.
