As for so many of my friends around world this weekend is very special I thought I share one of my favorite songs accompanied by some of my favorite animal portraits with you. I hope you enjoy this special ‘safari of the eyes’.
Aardwolfs are nocturnal, insectivorous mammals, native to East and Southern Africa.
They belong to the same family as the Hyenas. But unlike their relatives they do not hunt or scavenge on large animals. Aardwolfs eats mainly termites and their larvae. A single animal can eat up to 250,000 termites per night.
A few years ago I took this picture on a winter day in the late afternoon at Etosha National Park in Namibia.
