Aardwolf

Aardwolf

The aardwolf is also known as the civet hyena, gray jackal, and maanhaar jackal, (mane-jackal in Afrikaans), but its common name translates to earth-wolf in Afrikaans and Dutch.

The aardwolf’s common name means earth-wolf in Afrikaans and Dutch.

It is also called maanhaar-jackal, Afrikaans for mane-jackal, or civet hyena, based on its habit of secreting substances from its anal gland, a characteristic shared with the African civet.
