The cute wolf you’ve never heard of

Do you know anything about the aardwolf? This is the sweetest creature! It belongs to the same family as hyenas (and this explains their external similarity). But, unlike scavenger hyenas, the aardwolf prefers to feed on termites. Moreover, he does not destroy termite mounds.He waits for the termites to come to the surface of the soil, and then licks them off with his wide sticky tongue. The aardwolf hunts at night, and sleeps in the empty burrows of other animals during the day.
