just found out what they feed anteaters in captivity... Posted on February 23, 2023 by Anonymous just found out what they feed anteaters in captivity...
I feel absolutely baited by this thread, but I should have expected it with the laziest image macro format of all time for the OP
>can keep lions and elephants alive
>can't get their hands on some ants for the 'eater bros
Would literally be unsustainable
why aren't they fed ants
It's hard to produce enough. They dig up huge ant and termite mounds in the wild.
>it's literally IMPOSSIBLE for an anteater to be fed ants there's just NO WAY an anteater could be fed ants. w-what do they eat in the wild? why ants of course
You going to run down to the ant store and buy a 500lb bag of live ants?
oh so now the issue is that a retarded fucking vacuum cleaner sloth can find enough ants to eat but the might of industrial human society that has supposedly been on the moon, somehow cannot.
But they do, they make an insectivore kibble.
It's the same reason you don't have to feed your cat by letting birds loose in your house, or hauling a deer carcass home for your dog to munch on. Or why we're not picking lice off eachother for a snack and foraging for some barely edible roots and berries.
There's a more convenient solution that fill the same dietary requirements (which is a discussion in itself that we will table for the moment as its irrelevant to this particular discussion).
Not to mention, are you going to import those 8ft tall termite mounds from Africa? Because I'd just point to the material damages done annually thanks to the formosa termite getting spread around the world.
And I lived in taiwan, there's a reason literally everything was made out of concrete.
If you pretend to be retarded long enough then you're not pretending anymore.
A zoo would need acres of land dedicated to cultivating ants just for a single pair of snootboys.
Doubles as an ant safari though
"At the Zoo, the anteaters are fed a diet of commercially-prepared insectivore kibble, occasional bananas or avocado, hard-boiled eggs, vitamins and a mineral mix."
oh no, they are turning the anteaters into millennials
Maybe if they put down the avocado toast they could have their own houses instead of being wards of the zoo
>millenial anteaters are ruining the gran sabana (and here's why)
ngl I thought it would be really disgusting like a fecal-based kibble or some other fucked up shit. Still doesn’t mean they don’t deserve their ants, though.
They are ANTeaters and they aren’t even eating ants you easily swindled cow
Anteaters diet in nature consists primarily of insects, mostly ants and termites but also eat beetles, caterpillars and other insects, they will also eat other small animals, eggs, and fruits or vegetables if they can find them.
Sounds pretty good tbqh senpai
I wish to see an anteater eating a banana.
What is the problem? Are anteaters eating exclusively ants in nature?
Op is just trying to salvage his bad thread
>tigers aren't fed live pajeets at the zoo
>Anteaters have the same diet as female influencers
So...... Like......... The same if not better nutritional value.....?
Impossible Ants™ onions-based ant-less ant substitute?
