Mom Taxi XXXIII: The Ultimate Ride

This is probably the greatest Mom Taxi image that we’ve had in the now-33-images-long series. “Sunda Pangolin mum with her Pangopup, image credit: AP Photo/Firdia Lisnawati.” From Australian Geographic. Sent in by Tom T.



  1. Pangolins are endangered. Save them!

  2. Yes, they are and yes, we must! They can live at my house in all their pineconey awesomeness.

  3. So stinkin’ qte!

  4. I really the cute ear swirl that you can see well on the baby. This creature reminds me of ankylosaur.

  5. I’m not sure what’s cuter, baby’s eye capsules or the name, pangopup. It sounds like a Japanese boutique brand.

    And I don’t say this a lot, but that is an amazing tail on that old lady.

    i love the word pangopup, too. “pineconey awesomeness” is a winner!

  7. This has to be the ULTIMATE Mom Taxi. No way to top this one!

  8. Cynthia M says:

    I have loved pangolins for years. This is too cute.

  9. Smartypants says:

    Gorgeous – like armor-plated anteaters!

  10. Blue Footed Booby says:

    Mom taxi AND butt bed! 😀

  11. But wait, is there disembodied pink tongue action going on there too? Can it be?

  12. ok, CO. you’ve outdone yourself. I’ve said “scaly” and “‘s’ploding cute” in the same same sentence twice* in less than a month. and bebeh pango is practically lying on a bed of nails! (aren’t those little quill-ages down mum’s back?)
