Meet the rare and fascinating Aardwolf
I photographed this Aardwolf at Duba plains in northern Okavango Delta, Botswana, a seldom seen species and one I have not seen since (although I know there are places where you can see them regularly). While they look fairly mean they are in fact insectivores, you can read more below... The aardwolf (Proteles cristata) is a small, insectivorous mammal, native to East and Southern Africa. Its name means "earth wolf" in Afrikaans and Dutch. It is also called "maanhaar jackal"
