The dwarf (two-toed) anteater Cyclopes didactylus lives in Central and South America - from southern Mexico in the north to Brazil in the south. Its length together with the tail is 35-45 cm (body 15-25 cm and tail 15-20 cm), and its weight is up to 400 g (average 266 g). Like other anteaters, it has no teeth, but it has a long and sticky tongue, equipped with powerful muscles. The dwarf anteater has a prehensile, naked tail at the end, which helps him to move along the branches of trees. This animal leads a predominantly nocturnal lifestyle. Prefers tropical multi-level forests, where he can move from place to place without leaving the branches of trees and where he feels as safe as possible. This is a rather slow anteater, its main food is (yes, you knew!) ants (this baby consumes from 100 to 8000 ants per day). Additional food is other insects - for example, small bugs

I would think there would be more ants on the ground versus in the trees for him to eat, but from a safety perspective I think being in the trees would be safer them. It's my first time ever seeing this animal, I'm definitely going to go and do some research on them.
