Orycteropus afer (Pallas, 1766)
Mar 1988E London Zoological Society of London Annual Report 1988-89, p12: An Aardvark baby born in the Children's Zoo in March 1988 had to be hand-reared, and, although all went well initially, unfortunately she died in May. A photograph of a young Aardvark published in the 1987-88 annual report was accompanied by the caption The young Aardvark, born in summer 1987 ... This appears to be a mistake as the 1987 offspring was stillborn (the 1988 birth would have occurred by the time the 1987-88 report was published). Midway Manor Zoo Park (a private collection in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire) 1979 dns. These same animals were sent to London Zoo and had unsuccessful births most years between 1981 and 1987.
