Jerry and Penny Ant-E are enjoying a log filled with termites. They rest for up to 15 hours a day in a shallow depression that they scoop out of the ground; they rest with their head tucked between forelegs, covered by tail for camouflage.   They can gallop at speeds of 31 mph over short distances.  If provoked, they will sit back or rear up on their hind legs and strike with their claws.
