Description

“Pangolins are solitary and active mostly at night. Most live on the ground. They range in size from a large housecat to more than four feet long. They are largely covered in scales made of keratin—the same material as human fingernails—which gives them the nickname “scaly anteater.” When threatened, they roll into ball, like an armadillo, and they can release a stinky fluid from a gland at the base of their tails as a defence mechanism. Though they look and act a lot like anteaters and armadillos, pangolins are more closely related to bears, cats, and dogs.”
