  • Title: Species - Aardwolf
    Descriptive info: The aardwolf (.. Proteles cristatus.. ) is a poorly studied and often misunderstood carnivore of southern Africa.. The Institute for Wildlife Studies currently cooperates with the.. Malolotja Nature Reserve.. in Swaziland in their study of the nocturnal Aardwolf.. Inclement weather is a standard experience at Malolotja, especially during the late afternoons, which then makes it difficult for visual observations of the animals.. Wildlife researcher Sipho Nana Matsebula, working under the direction of Dr.. Ara Monadjem of the University of Swaziland, has only seen the elusive aardwolf a few times.. However, he also kept detailed records of other nocturnal animals occurring in the reserve: primarily the black-backed jackal (.. Canis mesomelas.. ), followed by serval, caracal, slender mongoose and the large spotted genet.. During more than 4000 miles of nighttime spotlight surveys of the grasslands of the Reserve, Sipho observed only four aardwolves! Nighttime observations (sunset to midnight) of active dens and mid-dens (i.. e.. ‘latrines’) were conducted for a total of 21 nights, but unfortunately no aardwolf was seen.. Daytime walks have also been conducted to identify sign of aardwolf occupation.. More than 15,000 hectares of the reserve have now been searched for possible aardwolf sign.. In his latest report, Sipho writes:.. Although  ...   how the aardwolf uses its' habitat.. The average aardwolf territory has numerous dens and mid-dens, about 20 dens/territory and 8 mid-den/territory.. The aardwolf does not use one den or mid-den throughout.. If it has used one den or mid-den on a particular night it does not necessarily mean that it would use the same den or mid-den the following night, it changes these units.. The aardwolf shows a very high selectivity for certain species of termites, so Sipho and his colleagues are studying the available termite populations.. Prior to this study collection of termites have not been made in the reserve or in adjacent areas, hence there is no record of the diversity of termite species present.. Specimens of the different termite species are collected from the termite mounds within the reserve and are stored in vial bottles in 70% alcohol.. So far 33 samples have been collected to be identified by a termite expert.. Sipho is currently characterizing the termite density, soils and vegetation of aardwolf territories.. Then he will study competition between warthogs and aardwolves.. The Institute is looking forward to learning more about this rarely seen and ecologically complex mammal..

  • Title: Island Fox - Main Page
    Descriptive info: Island Fox.. (Urocyon littoralis).. Four of the six island fox subspecies have suffered marked population declines caused by disease (Santa Catalina Island) and predation by golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos; on San Miguel, Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa islands)..
