Aardwolf (Proteles Christata) -
Despite its name, the aardwolf is a member of the hyena family. It is smaller than its Hyaenidae cousins and it does not hunt large prey. Instead, it has a modified, long sticky tongue that it uses to eat insects and termites. Occasionally, it will scavenge for carrion. Because of its diet, sometimes their teeth wear or fall out.
They are nocturnal and live in burrows. They are social and pairs will both work to raise pups. However during foraging, they will typically separate and feed alone.
Since they cannot run very quickly, they rely on their foul smelling spray, and their mohawk like manes that can be raised to seem more threatening.
