Aardvark men are the savage half-man/half-beast variant of the standard aardvark. They can be found topside in tropical biomes, wandering in groups of 1-5. Because of the double 'a', they appear near the top of alphabetized lists, including the create creature list in the object testing arena. Like their aardvarkian brethren, aardvark people do not actually eat vermin.

Like other savage animal people, aardvark men may occasionally join civilizations, becoming full-fledged citizens who may appear in your fortress as visitors or be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves prefer aardvark men for their long ears and snout.

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Some Aardvark men are known to wear glasses, and form tight relationships with many other types of humanoid animals, most notably the hare man. They can often be found in your fortress library.
