The aardwolf has a black mane extending from head to tail which it erects when threatened to appear larger.

During fights and chases, the aardwolf’s mane is fully erected.

If only slightly disturbed, the aardwolf just fluffs out the hairs of the tail. This is frequently seen in cubs while playing.
