Warthog with porcupine quill.

I have often wondered how much competition there is for Aardvark holes? Well it looks like this warthog has found out! There are three or four young warthogs that we see almost daily in our garden that have quills sticking out of them. I think that when the warthogs go home in the evening the porcupine is still in the hole and only leaves later once it is dark. In trying to get out the porcupine must have to push past the warthogs.

There are numerous animals that use aardvark hole's from warthogs to snakes and even some bird species.
