Anteaters as pets?

Instead of returning to the wild after he was nursed back to health, anteater “Pua” now lives as a domesticated pet, and his “mom” blogs about the experience of “Living with Anteaters” through the anteater’s own voice. Though reading about anteater’s habits may be interesting, any educational merit the blog has is overshadowed by some disturbing posts, such as one in which Pua’s caretaker posted pictures from a Thanksgiving photoshoot featuring Pua and the owner’s cat and dog. Sure, the anteater is cute, but someone might need to check on this woman’s sanity.
