Aardvarks eat insects, mostly ants and termites. Using their long tongues and sticky saliva they are able to suck up 50, 000 insects in a day. You can find more information here: https://www. brookfieldzoo. org/pagegen/htm/fix/fg/fg_body. asp?sAnimal=aardvark
Aardvarks prefer to eat ants when available, and can actually consume more than 50,000 of them in one night. If there are no ants available, like in the winter, they will eat termites.
