Watch Hoover, an inquisitive baby aardvark, at the Bronx Zoo exploring his environment.
In the wild, aardvarks are native to Africa. They have specialized features that help them hunt for their main diet: termites. They have thick claws useful for digging through termite mounds, long snouts that can suck up the termites, and a long sticky tongue that can slop them up.
