Aardwolf Might As Well Be The Cutest Wild Animal Out There (11 pics)

This little critter is a baby aardwolf

The adults are just as cute as the babies

Aardwolves come from the same family as the hyena, but these guys have mohawks!

Unlike their bone-chomping cousins, aardwolves prefer to munch on termites

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

They have long sticky tongues which they use to lap up thousands of termites

A single aardwolf can eat up to 300,000 termites per night!

An adult grows to roughly the same size as a fox

Being monogamous creatures, they stay with the same mate for their entire lifetime
