Meet The Cutest Animal You’ve Never Heard Of



It comes from the same family as the hyena, which explains why they look so similar. But unlike their bone-chomping cousins, aardwolves prefer to munch on termites, much like an aardvark.

They’re native to East and Southern Africa, where they live in underground burrows.

They often don’t dig the holes themselves, preferring to inhabit abandoned burrows of other animals.

They’re shy and nocturnal creatures. Although during the winter they’ll conserve energy by sleeping at night and feeding during the day.

They have long sticky tongues which they use to lap up thousands of termites. A single aardwolf can eat up to 300,000 termites per night!

An adult aardwolf grows to roughly the same size as a fox. And being monogamous creatures, they stay with the same mate for their entire lifetime.
