I discovered the aardwolf in an article from Boredom Therapy which declares the aardwolf as one of the cutest animals in the world. It has a great gallery of images that you can check out here. I have to admit I do find the little guy cute, so I went in search of more information and found this site all about the aardwolf.

They’re not wolves at all actually but are more closely related to hyenas which I think is pretty obvious when you see them. They share the same sort of build and coloring. These cool guys also have a really unique diet. They live on  harvester termites.

When you arrive at the site, you can scroll down through all the information to learn more about them. If you want to check out photos and videos, you’ll want to check out the media strip just below the main description. There you’ll find 3 videos and 19 photos. My favorite video was the one with the cubs at their den with adults. It was fun to watch the cubs play and see a beautiful silhouette of the adult aardwolf.

Go check out these adorable animals for yourself!
