Baby Aardvark

Sometimes called an “antbear” in its native Africa, its name actually means “Earth Pig” in Dutch. However, the aardvark is not related to bears, pigs, or the naked mouse featured previously, despite some outward resemblance. Aardvark’s are classified in their own order, Tubulidentata, which references the unique tubular structure inside their teeth. Living on a diet of termites and ants, humans hunt antbears because they look so delicious…
