Aardwolves are solitary foragers, except when accompanying their young cubs.

Even within mated pairs, individual aardwolves forage away from one another.

The un-weaned young are the only individuals that will be tolerated to accompany an adult when foraging, but even 4-month-old cubs spend most of the night foraging alone.
