May 2017: Aardwolf
The month of May has begun, and with it comes the official launch of FaunaFocus!
This month’s featured animal species is the Aardwolf, the smallest and most unique of the four extant hyaena species. Unlike other hyenas, this striped mammal is an insectivore and feeds on harvester termites, up to 300,000 in a single night. As a nocturnal creature, the aardwolf uses its relatively large ears and eyes to help it find food within the darkness of night. This small creature is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
