Oldest aardvark in captivity in the United States dies at 28
The oldest aardvark held in captivity in the United States has died at 28, having outlived its species' average lifespan by a decade, the Philadelphia Zoo said.
The zoo said on Twitter on Wednesday that AJ, a male aardvark, was euthanized on Jan. 5 due to age-related heart failure.
"Aardvarks are unique and almost unlikely-seeming animals," Dr. Andy Baker, the zoo's chief operating officer, told Reuters on Thursday. "AJ was an unusual favorite among guests and staff and he will be greatly missed here at Philadelphia Zoo."

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.
