Only a few people know that Salvador Dali, a great painter of surrealism, had a giant anteater as his pet. In the year of 1969, paparazzi even took a photograph of Dali while the artist was coming out of the subway accompanied by this strange animal.

In fact, the father of surrealism and the master of provocation didn't try to hide from journalists. He regularly walked the exotic pet on a golden leash along the streets of Paris.
