The "Anteater" name should be replaced with a more appropriate name. The decision to name this creature was clearly rushed, and not very well thought out. Honestly, the name is a smear on the Mammalogist community, The Ant is already an insect and it is inappropriate to just name a mammal or any creature after a portion of their diet. 

We have a variety of superior names for this understudied, and underappreciated mammal.

Here is a list:

Entuar

Amphamite

Snovell

Lyngo

We are always open to new ideas and name suggestions so if you have any please do not hesitate to let us know!
