Aardwolf (proteles cristatus) drinking at dusk. The aardwolf inhabits the grasslands of eastern and southern Africa. It is a solitary and nocturnal animal that lives in abandoned aardvark burrows and grows to lengths of 80 centimetres. The majority of its diet consists of termites, which it licks up with its long sticky tongue, but it will take other insects, bird's eggs and occasionally small rodents. Its large ears enable it to hear termites moving underground. Filmed at the Dolomite waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia.
