The first thing that stands out is the tree limb. At first I though he was supposed to be hanging from by his tail but apparently he is...


Pua's Mommy
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
Currently have 3 anteaters. They are all girls. We're waiting on a male for them but it'll be awhile.

I do art sometimes too.

I also have twitter and FaceBook Page :P You can find me most places under either TamanduaGirl or PuaTamandua.

All of my photos are on flickr but I add a few here and there to this site and have some of my art here.
So in case Santa is reading he can send me gifts at
PO box 97
Oakridge, OR 97463

We all love blue cheese!

It depends on my mood right now if I like spray cheese but Ori still loves it.

Ants are always good of course

Any feeder insects such as wax worms, not fond of crickets though.

Good sized cloth houses would be great since Ori beats them up 20" long by 15-17" wide and 15-17" high would be ideal

Hammocks Ori climbs on them to play like they were climbing nets or something. The big play hammock is about 39x39" and my smaller sleep hammock is 33"x33" We like pockets but they are not that important for the play hammock. I need them for my sleep hammocks though. Sometimes all three of us play in the big hammock(about 15 pounds each).

Full sized blankets or twin size quilts are good for in the washer on or the shelf.

Clothes are great Dog clothes work size varies by designer, baby clothes can work but mom sometimes has to adjust them.
My measurements are
Base of neck - 10.5"
Around her chest under her armpits - 15.25"
Around the base of her arms - 8.50"
Just her back from armpit to armpit - 8.25"
From between the shoulders to her hands - 10.5"
From the base of her neck to her waist - 11" long(could a some to reach her tail)
Around her waist/belly 21"
Wrist 5"

We aren't too into toys. We love old logs but don't suppose santa wants those in his sleigh. My favorite toy is the lint trap in the washer.

Of course I'm still checking my stocking for a washer drier combo machine(I sleep in the washer so get woken on laundry day a combo would replace the drier and I'd keep this) or that toy we all could share, a male Tamandua ;)

Good tamandua art is hard to find, good tamandua dolls and plushes even harder. Nice to hear when our photos contributed to it.

Where did you ever get those lovely animals? c:
Do you need a license to have one?
TamanduaGirl Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
They are really hard to get any more. I know a breeder but she doesn't like to sell unless she knows you well because because they are had to care for and people kill them by not taking proper care. She was going to give me a male but it never worked out for various reasons and now I wont get one as they are too old/health issues. Pua was a failure at wild living and I had her imported. Aurora was seized by Fish & Wildlife when someone tried to import her illegally and she got placed with me.

Federally you don't need a license to have them but you need a license to import. Each state, county and city usually have their own laws and requirements.
