What is a Pangolin?
Scaly, misunderstood, secretive and shy are some of the words that describe the personalities of the Pangolin. The interesting appearance of these fascinating animals is what makes it stand out from other mammals. Armed with horny, overlapping scales and equipped with sharp claws and a tongue so long, it is shocking.
It is believed that the African Pangolin has been around for over 40 million years, and has adapted itself throughout the ages to its ever-changing environment to ultimately survive.
There are eight different pangolin species in the world, with four in Africa and four in Asia.
