We don't know about you but we've fallen in love with Tammy the anteater already!

With her arms outstretched, she looks like she just wants to give you a big hug! And you can meet her yourself at London Zoo, where the 12-year-old is free to wander around with the public.

Tammy is one of the friendliest animals there and loves having a wander.

But due to her naturally bad eyesight, she has been given a minder to prevent her bumping into things and stop her getting walked all over by the night time visitors.

Keeper Caroline Westlake said: "Our minder will gently guide her around our evening visitors. We're now keeping our fingers crossed that the A-list treatment won't result in any diva-like behaviour."
