Aardvark with seriously thick skin

By Samara on July 10, 2011

Long week of night drives at Samara Private Game Reserve! Saw lots of bat-eared foxes, a caracal, two bushpigs, lots of porcupines, and 12 aardvark that all eluded us! The vegetation is just too dense for our plan of chasing them in to a burrow and setting up a trap outside, they just run in to the nearest bush and it’s impossible to keep up with them. We managed to dart one but unfortunately the dart hit at a bad angle and bounced out without injecting the anesthetic. The aardvark just looked up for a second and continued digging for ants like nothing had happened, seriously thick skin!
