There is no mating season for this smallish Mammal. Gestation lasts for 7 months and 1 offspring is produced.

Onewithnature, you are a star. :thumbs_up:

"There is no mating season for the aardvark. Gestation lasts for 7 months and 1 offspring is produced. The young aardvark is born pink and hairless. They remain in the burrow for about two weeks before they accompany their mother outside. The young begin to eat solids at 3 months of age and are weaned in 7 months. They reach sexual maturity at around 2 years of age".

:thumbs_up:

Since this quiz suggests revolving mammals ( :lol: ), let me throw in an interesting question that you most likely have never thought about:

Why have mammals in open, relatively-level surface areas (such as plains of the Camdeboo or Karoo, or harder-surfaced desert terrain) never developed wheel systems rather than legs for locomotion? Surely much greater speeds and efficiency of motion (similar to a car) could have been achieved?

Rolling resistance on different surfaces. (Soft/Hard)?
