Giant Anteater Mounted by Mr.Monin Taxidermiste at the Zoo Des Bruniaux, France

About the Item

Myrmecophaga tridactyla (II/B) - Cites :documentation of origin In Les Abrets en Dauphiné (France) a small zoo was established in 1968. It was called le Zoo des Abrets. The zoo was renamed Parc Zoologique des Brunniaux in 1986. This institution bred a giant anteater in captivity. When the mammal died, it was stuffed. Like all anteaters, this specimen has an elongated snout, and a thin, retractable tongue used to gobble up ants and termites. Anteaters are equipped with large, curved foreclaws to tear open ant and termite mounds. They are also helpful as a defence against predators. One can find these animals in dry tropical forests, rainforests, grasslands and even savannas.

  • Rowland Ward Antique Diorama of Full Mount Leucistic Badger 'Meles Meles'
    By Rowland Ward
    Located in Leuven , BE
    The badger is an omnivorous mammal with short legs for digging. He has an elongated, weasel-like head with small ears. This specimen is a European badger or Meles meles and is bigger than his American counterparts. The female badger in the showcase has a deviation in its pigmentation, which the light spots on its coat can notice. Such an animal with partial loss of pigmentation is called leucistic. Unlike people with albinism who have no pigmentation, leucistic badgers don't have red eyes but black ones. The taxidermist who handled the animal was James Rowland Ward (London, 1848-1912). He learned the trade from his father and opened his own company, "Rowland Ward Limited" in London. He mainly made a name for himself with his taxidermy birds and large animal trophies...
