The Aardvark

Behold the aardvark's appetite
Ants and termites its delight
Its sticky tongue gleans many legions
Of bugs it gets from nether regions
And if it could - would happily
Consume a boundless colony

    I don't mind the Aardvark, consuming the legions of ants. I kind of dislike all colonies. I need one of these weird looking ant eaters... wait a minute!! are the Aardvarks cousins of the Anteater?? Jon, i enjoyed this one... what an appetite.. xox..Linda

    Thank you. There are several varieties of ant eating mammals. The most unusual in my opinion is the pangolin.
