Cute Overload :D
On Thanksgiving, we showed you how Everyone Comes From Somewhere– a Bebeh Pangolin was part of that clip. Here’s more of that unusual lil’ critter:
Oh my! So beautiful! A cute modern dinosaur in action!
Not an animal you would expect to be so graceful in a tree.
This is a cute that could be sad… been reading about these sweet critters, and apparently they may be the most illegally trafficked mammal in the world – not only used for food and clothing but the scales are used for health cures. Trade in these critters is endangering the longevity of the species…here’s some more info on them: http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/01/opinion/sutter-pangolin-help-change/
To amplify Blakeney’s comment, here’s a petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/250/732/768/save-pangolins-from-extinction/
Ever seen them walking on the ground? They walk on their hind legs, tucking up their little pawses like teensy weensy velociraptors that have dressed up as pine cones for Halloween. If I’m lyin’ I’m dyin’.
Seems like all the armored scales in the world will protect them from the scariest animal of all…
Its tail is longer than its body. What a cutie!
Another animal endangered by the use of its body parts in useless ‘traditional’ medicine.
Pangolins sleep 18 hours a day.
Pangolins are actually pineapples that have reached maturity.
