Sorry for being a little delayed, I got caught up with work...and Skyrim...so I forgot that the month changed. :paranoid: But without further adieu the winner of the Animal of the month for June was MoonyMina with her beautiful drawing of an Aardvark in the style of a explorer's journal. Congrats! :clap:

Aardvark: Orycteropus afer by LeahCK

SOME FACTS!!

Aardvark
Orycteropus afer


Stats
Diet: Omnivore
Longest Recorded Age: 23 years
Size: Head to body – 43 – 53 in, tail to tip 21 – 26 in
Weight: 110 – 180 lbs

Aardvarks are very strange animals being categorized in their own order (Tubuildentata). Being a nocturnal creature aardvarks spend most of the day sleeping in a burrow. When night arrives the aardvark will venture out of its burrow in search for ants and termites. When these weird creatures look for insects to eat they will walk in a zigzag pattern. Once a nest is found the aardvark will use its sharp powerful claws to rip open the giant nests of the termites and ants, and with its 30cm long sticky tongue that aardvark will lap up any insect in its path.

Aardvarks can be found in grasslands, rainforests, savannahs, and woodlands of central and South Africa. With having a large range these creatures are of least concern when it comes to endangered status. However local populations can be sparse. No conservation actions are aware at this moment due to the high numbers of these animals, but that being said that doesn’t mean that this animal is not important. Much of the aardvark’s habitat is being destroyed due to deforestation and development.

And I hope you don't mind me posting this, but I am posting this to all wolf-related pictures here... There are Wolf hybrid puppies in need of help! They were found malnourished on the property of a deceased woman in Oklahoma. A wolf hybrid sanctuary in Arizona needs help raising the money to be able to transport the wolf puppies from Oklahoma to Arizona. More info is in this link ---> www.gofundme.com/4gwvsw

not spam, found 3 perfects songs n cut parts from lyrics of each for animals, nature, and wildlife itself:


"Some body please explain
Cause all we want is to be treated the same
Just live in peace with peace of mind
Enjoy the earth, this life and my kind (my kind)
Right now it's time to celabrate
Relax, Kick back put your feet up forget to hate.

Is it me or has this world gone crazy
Last chance, Last dance force maybe
Bombs are droppin body's poppin like the last days
Now I finally understand how crime pays
Its the plan that's designed through corruption
Total domination, mass destruction
Or mass distraction you do the math
When 1+1 don't equal 3 no
It's like a sickness that they don't want the cure for
Apocalyptic and only been sured for
It's like we're doomed and were headed for our last days
I wanna peace of mind, everlastin"

"Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars"

"Dare - dare to believe you can survive
You hold the future in your hand
Dare - dare to keep all of your dreams alive
It's time to take a stand
And you can win, if you dare"

Peace of Mind - Kottonmouth Kings
The Circle of Life - Elton John (& Tim Rice) [careful here; there's more than 1 version with same name]
Dare - Stan Bush
