Slug/snail?
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

It's not quite as big as an ant eater.

You're on the wrong track in terms of the types of animals you're guessing.

The metallic surface reflects the colours and forms of their environment so functions as camouflage.
