Winku Sirpe Jan!

Allen is right - in English it's a lesser anteater. In Spanish its called an oso hormiguero (literally anteating bear)! In Miskitu it is called winku sirpe.

There is another much larger species here called a greater anteater. In Spanish it's called oso caballo (literally anteating horse) which has a hairy tail like a horse. In Miskitu that one is called winku tara.

I've personally seen a number of winku sirpe in the bush. Unfortunately, I've only seen the skins of a few winku taras in the markets here. My great desire is to someday have the priviledge of seeing the much rarer winku tara in the wild!

Please forgive me if I don't respond for a long time 'cause I may be back in Prinzapolka! Regards, Mupitara

What is It?
