Spiny Ant Eaters are Not Harmful

Spiney Ant eater at Port Pirie S aoustralia

This is my day 3 of my ‘7 days of nature challenge’ We found this little guy hiding among the growth at a Caravan Park in South Australia. They eat ants, hence the name. Although, they will not hurt you, those spikes are there for a reason to protect them from predators.   They are really cute little guys, and yes, those spikes are sharp so be careful.

As hard as we tried we could not get a photo of his face, which was disappointing. He kept it hidden.
