There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Aardvark and other insectivores

I start a new topic about insectivorous mammals, other than the giant anteater. Often unrecognized but often essential too.

Dereck Joubert: " It’s an extraordinary treat seeing this member of the ‘shy five’ out and about – especially in the daylight hours. Sadly, the effects of climate change could make such encounters even rarer. Rising temperatures and increasing droughts can seriously restrict the abundance of aardvarks’ subterranean food (like ants and termites), with dire consequences. And as with so many other impacts on intricately interconnected ecosystems, one creature’s decline can have wide-ranging ripple effects. Just think about how many other animals, from hyenas to pythons to birds, rely on aardvark burrows for shelter and nesting. "
