There are half a dozen animals in the world called "anteaters" because they eat ants. This is the one indigenous to South and Central America, also called the "Ant Bear". You can make it plain, with a black band across the shoulders or with black and white bands. Take your choice. These anteaters have powerful front claws that curve backwards, for ripping open anthills.
Aardvark to Zebra 's vintage (1980's) stuffed animal patterns are more realistic than cutsy. All pattern pieces were hand-drawn and labeled, with complete instructions, illustrated with hand-drawn construction diagrams. Pattern pieces are full size, printed on one side of !!"x 17" paper, ready to be cut out. Arrows, notches, dots and seam-lines are clearly printed, all referenced in the instructions, so making these animals is easy. There are no construction photos, but a color photo of the finished animal(s) is on the cover, as well as a line- drawing showing seam lines. Many of the patterns have variations, some with more than one animal or the same animal in different sizes. They are a real joy to make and own.
