Ever heard of an aardwolf? If the answer is no then prepare yourself for the cutest animal you never even knew existed. 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 (the word “aard” actually comes from the Dutch word “aarde” by the way, which means earth).
They’re nocturnal creatures and they live in underground burrows in East and Southern Africa
Scientists once thought they were solitary creatures, but actually they’re very family oriented
They often don’t dig the holes themselves however, preferring to inhabit abandoned burrows of other animals
