The giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), sometimes called the ant bear, is the largest member of the anteater family and is best known from the tropical grasslands (Llanos) of Venezuela, where it is still common. It was once found in the lowland forests of Central America and still occurs in the Amazon Basin southward to the grasslands of Paraguay and Argentina.
