Season 2 / Episode 3
Big ears, long nose and a sticky tongue for catching upwards of 50,000 termites and ants in a night, aardvarks are adorable in an oddly strange way - except when they have an infected tooth. On episode 3, our veterinary staff came to the aid of an aardvark that had to have an infected tooth extracted. But no worries - she was up and eating her favorite food, avocado, soon afterwards and is back to being herself digging tunnels throughout her exhibit.
