Yip, you guessed it, it’s the sticky tongued, long eared digging machine that we all love and want to see commonly known as an Aardvark.
These cute earth moving mammals don’t seem so cute when you’re a bit closer, weighing in at 40-60 kg’s, and only a maximum height of about 50cm’s. These low profile animals are always on the move, we can only imagine how much digging needs to be done in one night to fill that stomach!
Aardvark in Welgevonden
Welgevonden is home to a vast number of termites, and naturally we get some nights when we find their predator lurking above the surface sniffing out every mound with his long snout and powerful claws.
