Namibian Truck Driver Saves A Baby Aardvark From Under His Truck And Finds Him A New Home (10 pics)

A truck driver in Namibia couldn’t believe it when he found a baby aardvark curled up next to his tires

He tried looking for its mother, but couldn’t find her anywhere

The exotic animal was taken to ZURI orphanage, where he captured the hearts of the staff members

The aardvark was named E.T. and given plenty of love. “It is a full-time job, much like a [human] baby”

“They need to be fed every couple of hours”

E.T. was also introduced to shelter’s rescue dogs, Spokie and Zarah

At first the pooches were confused as to what kind of dog E.T. was, but quickly he became one of their pack

“I don’t think ET realized he was an aardvark. I think he just assumed he was a dog”

After 5 months at a rescue, E.T. was released back into the wild

Still, the grateful aardvark “comes home every night” to visit his human ‘mom’ de Jager
