Aardwolf

Welcome to the pack

203 notes

The aardwolf is, if not the coolest wolf, at least the most underrated.  It’s not even a wolf, which makes its accomplishments all the more remarkable.  The aardwolf is more closely related to the mongoose than the wolf.  What’s more, it survives by eating bugs.  Yet, working within these constraints, the indominable aardwolf thrives.  In the order Carnivora, the aardwolf is first in the alphabet and first in style.
