Have you ever seen a cuter aardvark than Winsol? Aardvarks are “ecosystem engineers” of the African savannah. They dig burrows that can be up to 40 feet long, with several entrances. Once the aardvark has moved on, its abandoned burrow provides a safe hideaway for a multitude of other wildlife, including hyenas, warthogs, squirrels, hedgehogs, mongooses, bats, birds, snakes, lizards, and more. Some inhabitants, like African painted dogs and black-footed cats, face the threat of extinction, so a stable habitat is especially important to them. Thus, by protecting aardvarks, we can safeguard numerous other species.
