We could hardly believe our eyes when we saw YouTube user panther445‘s video of a young anteater reacting to being tickled.

We can’t help but notice a striking resemblance between this adorable anteater and a certain ticklish kitten that became a YouTube sensation last year.

Although anteaters aren’t as textbook cute as kittens, we think this little guy’s mastery of jazz hands might actually put him above the aforementioned ticklish kitten for sheer, overwhelming adorableness. Someone get this anteater a top hat, white gloves and a one-way ticket to New York!
