Do ant eaters eat termites as well?

    Yes, in addition to ants, anteaters eat termites and other “soft bodied grubs,” and sometimes fruit as well. They open insect colonies and tree trunks with their long, sharp claws. Sticky saliva covers their long tongues, allowing them to pull out the eggs, larvae and insects inside. Although they do not stay at each colony long, anteaters have the ability to eat a few thousand insects in just a few minutes.
