The BBC is currently filming a new season of Planet Earth, and during the team’s travels, they discovered Peter, a giant anteater.
Peter is a domesticated animal who serves as an ambassador for the plight of giant anteaters everywhere. These creatures have been around for 25 million years and they are now in danger of becoming extinct.
Their numbers have dwindled so badly over the last few years that breeding in captivity is their only hope for survival.
