Aardvark evolution or creation?
The aardvark is an unusual creature. This medium-sized mammal is native to Africa and is known for its pig-like snout which it uses to capture ants and termites along with providing a strong sense of smell stronger than that of dogs. The aardvark has been known to eat up to 50,000 ants and termites in one night. In addition, the aardvark is known to eat plants such as cucumbers. It also has a very arched back, sharp claws, and strong legs that aid in burrowing and is nocturnal. Despite its pig-like snout, the rest of its one meter-long body resembles a rabbit, hare, or kangaroo, including the kangaroo-like tail, leaving evolutionists perplexed about the origin of this animal and its ancestors. Others have said that the aardvark looks like it was made from parts of different types of animals. Aardvarks have some similarities to anteaters, but the ears vary widely in size with the anteater having very small ears while the aardvark has long-rabbit like ears, the snout is not as long and pig shaped, while each lives in different parts of the world. The tongue is long (one foot) but not quite as long as the anteater. The aardvark has also been identified as a living fossil, in that its morphology has not changed much from its fossil representatives, which evolutionists claim date to tens of millions of years ago. As with all living fossils, if the species has not changed in millions of years in morphology, this species is not the product of evolution but was the product of an Intelligent Designer who created this unique species with all of the features that it needed for survival. Creationists believe that the aardvark was created on Day 6 of Creation Week along with all of the other mammals and was carried on the Ark of Noah.
