Aardvark


Aardvarks kind of look like a cross between an anteater and a pig.
They have the pig nose, but it's a long nose with a tongue in it used to eat ants and termites.

They are so good at finding ants and termites that they can dig 2 feet deep in 15 seconds,
and they can eat as many as 50,000 of them in one night!

Anteaters only eat one type of fruit, and because of that it's nicknamed the aardvark cucumber!

The cucumber needs the aardvark to eat it so that it's seeds will come out in the aardvark poop and grow somewhere else.
