Baby Aardvarks

"Everything is cute when it is little" is what I have heard all these days until I came across this one. Baby Aardvarks possess all the qualities to be featured in our Ugly Animals blog. Well, Why not? If you think this Baby Aardvark is cute then you do not belong to the majority. May be, you are unique or rather one in a million:-)

But hey, I wouldn't put aardvarks on a cute animal list to being with, but newly born ones are especially hard on the eyes. Aardvarks are nocturnal mammals native to Africa that have a knack for burrowing.

Statistically, there are only about 35 aardvarks in zoos in North America.With fewer than a dozen successful births each year, aardvark births are not common. They are solitary by nature.

If you’ve been wondering, "Aardvark" means "ground pig" in Afrikaans/Dutch. It is not, however, actually related to the pig.
