A solitary and nocturnal member of the hyena family, the aardwolf specializes in feeding on termites. Rather than digging into a termite nest, the aardwolf simply licks up the insects with its long tongue and chomps down on them with its peg-like molars. A single aardwolf can consume 200,000 termites in one night.
