Fact #1 about Pangolins

The Pangolin, otherwise known as the scaly anteater, is the only mammal in the world to be covered from head to toe in keratin scales (the same as human finger nails). These scales account for up to 20% of a Pangolin’s entire weight.

Fact #2 about Pangolins

They inhabit tropical forests, dry woodlands and the savannah. Some pangolins spend their time up in trees and others sleep in burrows underground.

Fact #3 about Pangolins

The name Pangolin is derived from the Malay word ‘pengguling’, which means ‘rolling up’. This is in reference to the animal’s defence mechanism of rolling up into a tight little hardened ball when they are under threat.
