It isn’t every day that you see an anteater. For most of us, it requires a trip to the zoo or if we live in a limited part of the world where they exist in nature, we might see one in our backyard.
That doesn’t mean we aren’t familiar with the anteater, as most of us were introduced to them at some point in childhood, like in picture books or cartoons.
Of course, there is a difference between the cartoon creatures and what exists in the wild, but then again, there seems to be an unusual anteater that has gotten a lot of attention.
A video of a giant anteater with two heads showed up, and the Internet couldn’t get enough of it. It’s one of those videos that have you doing a double take, and it’s difficult to say what is real and what isn’t real.
After being posted to Twitter, more than 11.9 million people have viewed the video and tried to figure out its unusual anatomy. Many insisted that there was no way an anteater could survive with two heads, but is that true?
If you are having difficulty figuring this out, let’s put your mind at ease. The anteater has only one head, but the camera makes it look like there are two heads.
The first head is the dark head in the background. The second head is the one in the foreground with the white on the end. That is his forearm.
It’s just that the fluff makes it look like it is a second head.
