Watch video !!

The Tubulidentata Huxley, 1872, is one of the 17 orders of Placental Mammal (or Eutheria) currently recognised by Zoologists. However, the order Tubulidentata is unique among the Mammals because it is represented by a single extant species: Orycteropus afer (Pallas, 1766) -  the Aardvark.

Where does the aardvark live ? What does the aardvark eat ? For how long has it existed on earth ? Is the aardvark an endangered species ? etc.

Three professional zoologists, members of the World Conservation Union (IUCN), reply to these questions and give you more information about this fascinating and amazing animal.
