Abstract Tamandua mexicana (Saussure, 1860) is a medium-sized anteater commonly known as the northern tamandua or oso hormiguero. It has an elongated head and is toothless, with a slender and sticky tongue and a prehensile tail. Its fur has a black patch across the back like a vest worn backward against a pale yellow background. It is present from southern Mexico to the northwest Andes in South America; it also lives in many different forested ecosystems including transformed areas. The… 

Nuevos Registros del Oso Hormiguero, Tamandua mexicana, en el Occidente de México

Abstract Tamandua mexicana is a poorly studied species in Mexico. Its current distribution in western Mexico is unknown. In this paper we present new records of T. mexicana for Michoacán and Colima

Mammalian Diversity and Matses Ethnomammalogy in Amazonian Peru Part 2: Xenarthra, Carnivora, Perissodactyla, Artiodactyla, and Sirenia

TLDR
The principal contribution of this report consists in the natural history information compiled from the authors' Matses informants and the resulting overview of local community structure as defined by diurnal activity, locomotion, social behavior, and trophic relationships.

Diet composition of an escaped captive‐born southern tamandua (Tamandua tetradactyla) in a nonnative habitat in Asia

Abstract Studies on the role of natural predatory instincts in captive‐born mammalian myrmecophagy are rare. Consequently, researchers rely extensively on case reports to learn more about the

Anatomical and radiographic study of the scapula in juveniles and adults of Tamandua mexicana (Xenarthra: Myrmecophagidae)

TLDR
The bony reliefs of the scapula of T. mexicana corroborate the specialization of the shoulder in this species and allow for better clinical procedures, surgical approaches, radiological diagnosis and muscular reconstructions in extinct species of anteaters.

RADIOGRAPHIC ANATOMY OF THE FORELIMB IN THE NORTHERN TAMANDUA ( TAMANDUA MEXICANA )

TLDR
The radiographic anatomy of the thoracic limb of the northern tamandua is described for the first time using four standard views and one additional view to visualize structures that are otherwise difficult to visualize due to the natural forearm position of anteaters.

Comparative mitogenome phylogeography of two anteater genera (Tamandua and Myrmecophaga; Myrmecophagidae, Xenarthra): Evidence of discrepant evolutionary traits

TLDR
It is considered that a unique species of Tamandua likely exists, i.e., T. tetradactyla and T. mexicana were not reciprocally monophyletic, and temporal mitochondrial diversification for Tam andua began during the Late Pliocene and Upper Pleistocene, but for Myrmecophaga began duringThe Late Miocene.

The hemoflagellates of sloths, vermilinguas (anteaters) and armadillos

TLDR
There are enormous gaps in the authors' knowledge of xenarthran hemoflagellates but it is recommended that particular priority be given to the isolation and characterization of stocks from the numerous hosts found in different geographical regions.

THE MAMMALS OF PARACOU, FRENCH GUIANA: A NEOTROPICAL LOWLAND RAINFOREST FAUNA PART 2. NONVOLANT SPECIES

TLDR
Systematic research with nonvolant mammal specimens collected as voucher material resulted in the discovery of new taxa, documented range extensions of previously described species, and helped resolve many longstanding taxonomic problems.

Trypanosomes of the lesser anteater, Tamandua tetradactyla, from Panama.

TLDR
A little-known species not previously reported from Panama, T. legeri, was found in five animals and established in vitro culture for the first time, and observations concerning the biology of this species, as well as its biometric characterization based on a much larger number of parasites than has heretofore been available are reported.

THE XENARTHRANS OF NICARAGUA

TLDR
Replacement of the milk dentition in Dasypus novemcinctus is described and illustrated, documenting the most common adult dental formula of i 0/0, c 0/ 0, p 7/7, m 1/1 = 32.

A Statistical Analysis of Taxonomic Differences within the Genus Tamandua Gray (Xenarthra).

TLDR
Comparison of ranges and means suggests that only chapadensis and mexicana have any claim to be considered distinct subspecies on the basis of skull proportions, and it is clear that proportional differences between two groups of animals cannot be accepted as evidence of taxonomic distinctness when size differences occur, without further analysis.

Chromosome study of Anteaters (Myrmecophagideae, Xenarthra): a preliminary report

TLDR
The results indicate the existence of a new karyotype in the genus Tamandua, with 2n = 56 chromosomes, which can represent a new lesser anteater species.

NORTHERN-MOST RECORD OF THE COLLARED ANTEATER (Tamandua mexicana ) FROM THE PACIFIC SLOPE OF MEXICO

TLDR
This record represents a northern range expansion along the Pacific slope and strongly support the second hypothesis that the collared anteater has just recently dispersed into the state of Colima.

A New Four-Toed Anteater from Mexico

TLDR
One of them is a four-toed anteater, Tamandua tetradactyla , which heretofore has not been recorded from western Mexico north of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.

Neotropical Rainforest Mammals: A Field Guide

TLDR
This book identifies characteristics, similar species, vocalization, behaviour and natural history, geographic range, conservation status, local names and literature references of 226 species of rainforest creatures.

Defenses of Nasutitermes Termites (Isoptera, Termitidae) Against Tamandua Anteaters (Edentata, Myrmecophagidae)

TLDR
It is suggested that the nasute soldiers are an effective defense against predation by anteaters on the nest and speculate on the role of mammalian termite-eaters in maintaining the Nasutitermes defense system.
