First rhino and elephant tusk…now this?

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals claims that Zimbabwean poachers are looking rare anteaters for Asian countries.

Asia's demand for exotic animals for their medicine is staggeringly increasing, and anteaters are next on the list.

Zimbabwe sees anteaters as creatures of power and mystery but three bodies have been recovered from poachers.

The latest recoveredanteater had its scales removed, scales being a main ingredient in Asian remedies.

Poor anteaters.
