A genus of the family Orycteropodidae, with the order of Tubulidentata, of which the Aardvark is the only living species. That's it. Really. Don't look at me like that.

Okay, fine. It is also species of a scarcely known fish of the genus Campylomormyrus, and of the family Mormyridae- sometimes called elephantfish or freshwater elephantfish.

In latin, 'orycteropus' means 'aardvark'
