Aardvarks are a species of animal native to the Pride Lands. They are burrowing animals who feed on fruits and grubs, and are preyed upon by hyenas.

Physical characteristics

The aardvark is a four-legged species of moderate size. It generally sports long ears, an elongated snout, a furless tail, and sharp digging claws. Most aardvarks have brown pelts, with lighter fur along their chests and muzzles, and darker fur on their legs.

Sociocultural characteristics

Those aardvarks who reside in the Pride Lands live in burrows, generally near a source of water, and feed on fruits and grubs. They can be quite territorial and do not take lightly to intrusions or other animals stealing their food. Hyenas are known to prey upon aardvarks.
