About the Pangolin

Pangolins are shy and mysterious animals that live in Africa and Asia. They have unique scales all over their bodies that protect them from predators.

These scales are made of keratin, which is the same material that makes up our hair and nails.

Pangolins are also very good at rolling into a tight ball to protect themselves from danger. They love to eat ants and termites, which they catch using their long, sticky tongue.

They are nocturnal animals and spend most of their days sleeping in burrows or hollow trees. Pangolins are an endangered species due to illegal hunting and habitat loss, but conservation efforts are underway to protect them.

They are unique and fascinating animals that are a joy to learn about.
