Another old one. Giant Anteater attacking a termite mound. The most amazing creatures (we saw several). As their sight is poor they come quite close provided you have the wind in the right direction.

As the mounds are like concrete the noise of the long claws raking down the surface followed by the sucking noise as termites are hoovered up is quite memorable.

Thanks for the comments on Gyzmo - a most photogenic bird.
