Science Art: Aard-wolf, Webster’s New International

Proteles cristata, the earth-wolf of southern Africaraman amplifier. He’s got a guilty look about him, doesn’t he? He knows what the other hyenas have been hiding. They’re his cousins.

They eat carrion and whatever they can kill; he eats termites – as many as 300,000 a night, lapping them up with his long, sticky tongue.

What. What are you looking at. Go on, get out of here.
