    Correct Answer
    A. Africa
    Explanation
    The aardvark is a mammal native to Africa. This is because Africa is the only continent where aardvarks are found in the wild. Aardvarks have adapted to the African environment and are well-suited to the savannas, grasslands, and woodlands of the continent. They have specialized features such as long snouts for digging into termite mounds, which are abundant in Africa. Additionally, aardvarks have specific predators and prey that are unique to the African ecosystem. Therefore, Africa is the correct answer for the continent where aardvarks are native.
