Did you know - a giant anteater's tongue can reach up to 50cm in length and they can eat up to 30,000 ants in one day!

These rare, South American giants are classed as Vulnerable on IUCN Red List. At Edinburgh Zoo they can be found at the hilltop near the Tiger Tracks enclosure.

Say g'day to Mia & Hemsworth! This pair of Western grey kangaroos arrived back in December and are settling in well. Skip past & say hello on your next visit ... they can be seen in the enclosure adjacent to Wallaby Outback.

In September the Hoofstock keepers celebrated World Rhino Day by giving Bertus, the greater one-horned rhino a punch bag and some boxes filled with treats as enrichment.
