The Anteater

Size: 19 x 6.5 x 12 cm

Crank mechanism with spiral gear, gear wheel and lever

The Anteater belongs to the 7 models in Spooner's "Moving Animals".

Unflustered, the ant is running round in a circle while the anteater lies in wait for its victim. It always stretches out its tongue a bit too late - caused by the mechanism.
