Anteaters, also incorrectly called aardvarks, are a species of villager in the Animal Crossing series. They have wide bodies, prominent long noses, and small ears, in addition to fan-like tails, similar to the ostriches. They lack mouths, and instead talk by moving the ends of their noses up and down, much like Tom Nook.
There are ten anteater villagers so far; seven female, and only three male, making this species predominately female. Two of them are peppy, three are normal, one is jock, one is cranky, two are snooty, and one is smug. Currently, there are no lazy or sisterly anteaters. There are three anteaters that do not appear in Animal Crossing New Leaf - Welcome Amiibo: Lulu, Nosegay, and Zoe. Anabelle, Antonio and Snooty are the only anteaters who appear in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
