Oh, gee, um …hi. (soft voice) I’m, …well, would you mind very much if I don’t run off to slay dragons today? (avoids eye contact) I hope you still like me.
Megan in Zimbabwe says, “Meet Champ, the baby orphaned pangolin! I took this photo of him about a month ago – his handler Ellen at Tikki Hywood Trust told me yesterday that he’s up to 2.5 kgs. He was orphaned as a little baby because his mom was killed by poachers. These animals are considered royal game in Zimbabwe, but even so, very little is known about them because they are very quiet and just roll into a ball when they are scared.
The nice ladies at Tikki Hywood Trust have also posted a couple of videos on YouTube, including one nice shot of Champ’s insanely long tongue. And one with him playing with a nekkid cat!
