That tamandua is absurdly cuter than any Earth creature has a right to be...

The huge claws don't look cute.

"The malls of America, 1990"

Wow. 21 years is a long time...

David

“Wow. 21 years is a long time...”

Yes, they were happier, simpler times. Patrick Swayze was worshipped as a god and mortals roamed the Earth in belly shirts, denim and lots of very big hair.

Makes you think, eh? Do kids now even know what backcombing is?

Nah! Killed by the Rachel cut and "Married with Kids"

We can only hope for a revival of the Peggy Bundy look.

"The huge claws don't look cute."

No, indeed. But probably used more to dig out insects than in defence. Wouldn't want to upset a giant anteater, mind you...

What about you, David? Ever been tempted? ;)

David

“Ever been tempted?”

No, I never had big hair myself, despite hitting puberty in the era of techno-pop. Though as a callow youth I did spend many hours waiting for female friends who were preparing for an evening on the town and backcombing furiously, the air practically sticky with industrial-strength hair lacquer.

"So, Julia. Were you ever a Big Hair Gal?"

Sadly, no... :(
