Happy National Aardvark Week from everyone's favorite aardvarks – Winsol and Ali!
Winsol is 2-months-old are sexually mature.and beginning to try out solid foods. Aardvark cubs grow up very quickly. At three months they are weaned and at six months they are ready to leave their mothers. At 2 years old, both female and males
At 1 1/2 months old and over 20lbs, Winsol the baby aardvark is really growing up. He's trying solid foods and is very active and playful. Female aardvarks typically give birth to one newborn each year. The young remain with their mother for about six months before moving out and digging their own burrows.
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.
