There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Giant anteaters are incredible animals very common in Estado Apure in the Venezuelan Llanos, the best moment to find them is late during the day and at night when they are very active, they are very quiet calm animals that prefer to run away from humans, you can get very close to them with out any danger up to 3 meters, if they feel they are threatened they can be dangerous for humans standing on its hind legs ready to attack with their huge powerful claws.
