An Amazing Animal:

Recently, while going down a rabbit hole about current research into the origin and domestication of dogs (I will probably write about that later) I branched off a bit into researching hyenas and I learned about a very interesting type of hyena. It is called the aardwolf (and here's a bit from National Geographic about them) , which is, in itself, an intriguing name. It means 'earth wolf'. Aardwolves are native to south eastern Africa and live in the grass and scrublands there. They are about 20 (10-30 for outliers) lbs in weight, long, skinny, with a lovely thick tail. They are nocturnal.

Albert wrote these words way back in the year of my birth. A lot has changed since that time.
