Bizarre Creature: Aardvark

My son enjoys reading this “Weird Animals Dictionary,” an A to Z of the world’s most bizarre creatures, and he really appreciates the pictures of animals inside the book. The first bizarre animal I want to share with you is the AARDVARK. It is also known as the ant bear, and this unusual mammal is found in Central and southern Africa and has no close relatives. It has a pig-like snout and strong teeth in its jaws, but it hardly ever uses its teeth to bite or chew food. It prefers to gather up ants and termites with its long tongue and swallow them whole.

It has a maximum length of 1.6m (5 ¼ ft). The AARDVARK is one of the best diggers in the animal world. It uses its powerful claws to make burrows that are more than 10 meters (33 ft) in length.
