is this an anteater?
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

Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny?
