Another first!  Two aardvark photographed together.

Aardvark are photographed frequently in Matobo, but are usually solitary.  This recent photo of two animals together is a rarity.  They are about the same size, and look like adults, so it is possible that they’re a pair.

Camera trapping can reveal really interesting information.  For example, we got photos of an individually-recognisable aardvark at two places 1.3 km apart (as the crow flies) in a single night.  In rugged terrain, it must have covered a fair bit more than that; quite a feat for a small animal.
