Aardvarks do not lay eggs. They are mammals that reproduce by giving birth to live young and only give birth to one baby aardvark at a time. The only two mammals known to lay eggs are the platypus and the Echidna.
Once the baby aardvarks hatch, the mother aardvark’s produce milk for them to drink. The baby aardvarks are born without hair and stay inside the burrow for at least two weeks. It drinks the mother’s milk for about four months and then afterwards it will begin to start eating insects
When a young aardvark is about the age of six months, he leaves the burrow and can be found going out on his own. Young females stay with their mothers until she has another baby. Then the young one digs a burrow nearby and continues to hunt and socialize with the mother aardvark and other females. Female aardvarks tend to live in one area for their entire life, while males are known to wander around. Just by looking at these few facts it is obvious to see that these creatures are quite bright.
