Goliath, the Orphaned Anteater

What do you do with an orphaned anteater? Goliath was found on the side of the road in Ecuador after his mother was hit by a car. The staff at Merazonia Wildlife Rescue took him in and fed him goat's milk. But how do you teach an anteater how to eat ants? Goliath's caretakers raised him with the freedom to roam the rain forest, alternating with the security of foster care when he needed it. But the time eventually came when he was old enough to be a wild animal on his own. You can see further footage of his release at Instagram. Months after moving to his new home, Merazonia reports that Goliath is doing just fine and is living his best anteater life. (via Fark)
