Aardvarks are excellent burrowers, using their thick claws on their forefeet.
Aardvarks live south of the Sahara Desert, where there is suitable habitat for them to live.
Aardvarks dig burrows (holes in the earth) as homes.
The aardvark is nocturnal, solitary creature that feeds almost exclusively on ants and termites (formicivore); the only fruit eaten by aardvarks is the aardvark cucumber.
Aardvarks live in African savannas, grasslands, woodlands, and bush.
Aardvarks also provide ecological values, being considered by many to be a keystone species in various ecosystems.
