Despite appearances these animals aren’t reptiles, as many people believe. In fact, they are the world’s only scaly mammal — hence their other name, scaly anteaters. The creatures can grow to up to a meter in length, or around 3 feet. Eight species can be found living across parts of Asia and Africa.
