Fun Facts:

According to Diffen.com,

Anteaters and aardvarks are similar looking animals that are actually different species.

An Aardvark is a nocturnal, long-snouted, burrowing South African mammal, with long ears; they have great ant and termite identification skills.

The Aardvark is vaguely pig-like. Its body is stout with an arched back and is sparsely covered with coarse hairs. The limbs are of moderate length. The front feet have lost the pollex (or ‘thumb’), resulting in four toes but the rear feet have all five toes. The ears are disproportionately long, and the tail is very thick at the base and gradually tapers. The greatly elongated head is set on a short, thick neck, and the end of the snout bears a disc, which houses the nostrils.

The mouth is small and tubular, typical of species that feed on termites. The teeth grow and are replaced during the aardvark’s whole lifetime! A fully grown aardvark is about 5-6 ft in length including the tail which alone is about 2 ft. The aardvark is pale yellowish gray in color, and often stained reddish-brown by soil. The aardvark’s coat is thin and the animal’s primary protection is its tough skin

Fun Facts:

The name ‘aardvark’ means ‘earth pig’ in the African language.

The tip of the snout is blunt and has two nostrils like in pigs. The ears are long and tubular in shape. Their pinkish-gray can be seen through the hairs, which are dull brownish or yellow-gray in color. The tail is long, muscular and has no hairs.

These creatures are well adapted to eat ants and termites, thus are often called pure anteaters.

Their eyes are small with weak sight. However, their hearing and olfactory organs are extremely well-developed.

Unlike anteaters, aardvarks have teeth.

These creatures are nocturnal and live in burrows during the day.
