Aardvarks are very goofy creatures. According to Wikipedia’s aardvark article, aardvarks are nocturnal, burrowing animals native to Africa and they reach weights between 60 and 80 kg (130 and 180 lb).

This aardvark was born in March 2013 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay:

If ever there was a prize for the weirdest animal in the world — aside from anteaters, platypi, and a handful of others as possible contenders — aardvarks would certainly be one of the recipients of this prize. Aardvarks have rabbit-like ears, pig-like snouts and a slew of other features all mixed together into one odd and adorable ensemble. This pair of sleeping aardvarks certainly look like sweethearts. I bet the mother is doing a great job caring for her young. These specific aardvarks are a set from the Colchester zoo. You can check here at ZooBorns to see other special animals born at zoos!
