Adorable Anteater Shows Off 'Incredible' 16-inch Tongue at Zoo in Washington

An eight-year-old tamandua (anteater) named Gonzo was captured by a keeper showing off its “incredible” 16-inch tongue at Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington.

The footage here, released by the zoo, shows Gonzo the tamandua, which uses its “16-inch super-long tongues to slurp up insects.”

According to a recent article by the zoo, Gonzo also likes to eat “apple cider vinegar banana cubes.” Credit: Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium via Storyful
