aardvarks at risk insects can;t take temperature rise

4 posts in this topic

Aardvarks prove to be highly susceptible to the warmer and drier climates that are predicted for the western parts of southern Africa in the future. During the study of a number of aardvarks, all but one of the study animals -- as well as other aardvarks in the area -- died because of a severe drought, with air temperatures much higher than normal and very dry soil in the area.

 

the ants and termites died from temperature rise

Yes I saw this @COSMIC RHINO  one does not necessarily think of aardvarks being affected by the drought but if there are no termites because of the drought, no Aardvarks

Well if there are no aadvarks  who will open the termite mounds ?

 

Where will burrows come from ? 

 

No termites ,so how many animals will perish from lack of food

 

 

Intense consumer  civilization is making a real mess  , it takes a whole lot away and only gives back superficial emptyness
