Eduardo weighs in at an impressive 2 pounds and his favorite hobbies include sleeping, digging, making “confetti” (shredding paper), and sniffing the shoes and socks of his dedicated animal keepers. In nature, this subspecies eats mostly ants and termites which it finds by using those long claws to dig and break apart logs where the bugs live. Eduardo especially enjoys worms, some greens and other veggies like carrots and yams. He occasionally will munch on bananas, grapes, or papaya—but only when it suits him.
