PostSubject: Anteaters during the winter   Wed Sep 16, 2015 8:04 am

I was wondering, how do you care for anteaters during the winter months? I want mine to be as comfortable as possible, but it gets below zero and we have trouble heating the house (we use a fire place half the time) so how would I keep them warm and comfortable? What about humidity? It is so dry during the winter, would that cause problems with their skin?

Thanks for any assistance. : )

They can get cracked ears and tail if it gets too dry. Use a humidifier and/or oil their ears with something like wheat germ oil.

When I first had Pua winter was one of the reasons she wore a lot of clothes in the house. Now I just keep the heat up for them since when I got Aurora she was prone to getting ill. You can add a space heater or wall heater to their area.
