Aardwolf

https://faunafocus.com/home/may-2017/#jp-carousel-588

The aardwolf is primarily nocturnal as its activity is determined by the activity of the termites it eats.

Aardwolves feed primarily on nasute harvester termites, mainly on Trinervitermes bettonianus in East Africa, Trinervitermes rhodesiensis in Zimbabwe and Botswana, and Trinervitermes trinervoides in South Africa.

Trinervitermes trinervoides cannot tolerate direct sunlight and is therefore almost entirely active at night.
