The colour of anteaters' fur depends on the species.

The Giant anteater, for example, is grey or brown, and it has a white-banded black stripe running halfway down its body. The Silky anteater has fur which is grey to yellow in colour, with a silvery sheen. The Southern Tamandua is mostly light or dark tan, or brown or black, with black markings around their shoulders which resemble a vest. The Northern Tamandua has the distinctive black vest over creamy-yellow fur.
