I think it’s a pronunciation difference. In the US it’s pronounced with a clearer V in Vark, compared to the British which is more of a Wark. Closer to Park than Work.

aardvark - pronunciation (American, British, Australian, Welsh) - YouTube
All of those are wrong since it's originally an Afrikaans word. And is of course pronounced "aardvark".
