seeking snout sleuths!
Have you seen this anteater's snout? It belongs to a sculpture on the famous Animal Wall at Cardiff Castle in Wales, U.K. The crouching anteater was built back in 1931, and its nose has been missing for more than a decade. Local officials would like to finally replace the snout, but no one has any record of what the anteater looked like before its snout came off! Have you got an old picture of this fellow with his nose still intact? If so, leave a comment! •>~
Update: Good news: A local man who had taken some pictures of the anteater sculpture back in the early 1990s has emerged! No photos have been released to the public yet, but it sounds like the restoration to the anteater can now proceed as scheduled.
