Rest in peace, Antonio

11 07 2010

I’m sad to report that Antonio didn’t make it through the night last night.  We loved him a lot and are all heartbroken over it.

He is a true lesson about the negative impact of the exotic pet trade.  He was taken from his mother at way too young an age by people who thought only about money and cared little about his welfare.  For every healthy and happy pet anteater that makes it to live with a family, dozens of babies like Antonio end up dead.
