Fabio, Tamanduah bandeira is the scientific/latin name for the species and NOT the Brazilian name. It may not even have a distinct Brazilian name. Giant Anteater is the common (or if you prefer vernacular) name in the English language.

Yes it is normal size for the 'giant anteater'. Giant Anteater is the English common/vernacular name for this species of anteater. When I called it a 'giant anteater' it was not my intention to suggest that it was any larger than any other member of the species, I was merely giving the primary common name rather than the scientific (latin) name Tamanduah bandeira.

Brazilian name is "tamanduah bandeira"; very likely a female, because the male is smaller

Not giant; it is the normal size
