Aardwolf

The earth wolf is a carnivorous mammal.

Aardwolf is a carnivorous mammal. Aardwolf is covered in a yellow-orange color with black stripes extending in the middle of this color. It is also covered with thick, rough fur that becomes denser at the tail. Aardwolfs also have terrifying black manes. Its snout is small and pointed, and its jaw muscles are weak. Its ears are long, but its front teeth are similar to those of a hyena, but smaller in size and conical in shape.

physical traits

The reason why it is called the Aardwolf comes from the fact that it lives in burrows, such as deserted pigs, and its environment is the African savanna. It is nocturnal and shy. It is called a deficient carnivore because its main food is termites and it feeds on it with its long sticky tongue, and it can eat 200,000 white ants in one night. Their height is about half a meter at the shoulder, they are about three-quarters of a meter long, and they weigh about 15 kilograms.

The aardwolf belongs to the hyena family. It differs in size from hyenas that have four toes on their feet only, while it has five, and sometimes the earthwolf is classified in a separate family from hyenas, and people who separate it from hyenas are wrong.

distribution and citizen

Aardwolf lives in clans, each of which is ruled by one, and all its females are for him, and the area is determined by spreading urine around it, and the male has to defend it against intruders with a stench like the smell of skunk. It is endemic to Africa from Somalia to the south, and on the coasts of the Red Sea.

actions

It starts fighting if it hunts an intruder inside its area, especially during the mating season, and the pregnancy lasts for a period ranging from 90 to 110 days. They give birth to 2-4 puppies and are weak and blind at birth, like most carnivores. Most puppies die in the dry season due to lack of food, and their lifespan is estimated to be about 12 years.

Aardwolf is one of the rare dogs capable of attacking human children, but it avoids places where the latter unites because humans are a great danger to it. In recent years, the living quarters of this species have shrunk due to human hunting for this dog or placing it in zoos.
