Aardwolf Fun Fact

 The aardwolf is in the same family as the hyenas, however there are many differences between the two.  For starters, the aardwolf has a more slender muzzle, sharper ears and a long mane down the midline of it's neck and back.  But the easiest way to tell the difference, is to take a gander at it's feet.

In comparison to the hyena,  the aardwolf is less of a runner, so the aardwolf's front feet have five toes each, unlike the four-toed hyena.
