Abstract

Terrestrial members of the order Carnivora show great variation in their diet; some specialising on vertebrates, invertebrates, or plant matter, whereas others are omnivores or scavengers (Bekoff et al, 1984). The aardwolf Proteles cristata is a highly specialised myrmecovore (Skinner and Chimimba 2005). We present a first report of a wild aardwolf preying on a vertebrate - captive geese Anser anser domesticus.
