The aardwolf has a highly specialized diet consisting almost exclusively of harvester termites, and is able to tolerate the toxic secretions of the termite soldiers. In the summer, as many as 3,000 termites may be consumed each night, while in the winter, termites are much scarcer and only around a fifth of this number will be consumed, resulting in a dramatic loss of body mass. The aardwolf has a long, sticky tongue that is effective at licking termites from the soil surface.
