The Aardvark (Orycteropus afer) is a medium-sized mammal native to Africa.
The Aardvark was originally placed in the same order as the South American anteaters because of superficial similarities which, it is now known, are the result of convergent evolution, not common ancestry.
The Aardvark is distributed across most of sub-Saharan Africa, and although hunted by humans both for its flesh and for its teeth (which are used as decorations), does not appear to be threatened.
