Sun Gazer by CobraVenom Sun Gazer by CobraVenom
Painted my sister, :iconilenora:'s, birthday :squee:
Go wish her a happy birthday and give her some love - she is a very talented artist! :la:

This little guy is a Tamandua :happybounce:

Tamanduas live in forests and grasslands, are semi-arboreal, and possess partially prehensile tails. They mainly eat ants and termites, but they occasionally eat bees, beetles, and insect larvae. In captivity, they will eat fruits and meat. They have no teeth and depend on their powerful gizzard to break down their food.

The Northern Tamandua ranges from southeastern Mexico south throughout Central America, and in South America west of the Andes from northern Venezuela to northern Peru. Southern Tamanduas are found from Venezuela and Trinidad to northern Argentina, southern Brazil and Uruguay.

They are very clumsy on the ground unlike their cousin, the giant anteater. To avoid puncturing their palms with their sharp claws, they walk on the outsides of their "hands."


I hope you like it! :dummy:

Painted from scratch in Adobe Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Tablet. References used.
