XXXXS anteater?

With its fine hairs and long snout, the cionus hortulanus weevil looks a little like an anteater. But they don’t use their snouts to snuffle ants or termites out of their holes. It helps them eat plants. The cionus hortulanus is part of the vast true weevil family. It is mostly found in Asia and Europe.
