#2 – Aardvark
Aardvarks looks like small pigs with just longer snouts, don’t you think? Their name in Africaans means “earth pig.” They have body parts found on pigs, kangaroos, rabbits but genetically they are not linked to any of these animals. It is however related to the tenrec.
Aardvarks spend their days in the burrows they dug with their feet and claws underground. At night, they roam grasslands and forests in search of termites and their favorite, ants.
No wonder the call them antbears. When they find a mound, they dig through it with their front claws and use their long, sticky, worm like tongue to pull these termites in their mouths.
