The animal of the day is the Aardwolf. (Did you know: This is neither an Aardvark nor a Wolf! It’s actually related to Hyenas [can you see the resemblance].
Unlike Hyenas, aardwolves don’t hunt large prey. They feed mostly on termites! Like the aardvark which gives them their name, aardwolves have long sticky tongues that they use to collect ants and termites from their mounds!
They will often memorize and return to termite nests to save the trouble of finding a new one. They are also known to feed on other insects, larvae, and eggs, and occasionally small mammals and birds. Unlike other hyenas, aardwolves do not scavenge for dead animals.
