Baby pangolin

Explore cute and fascinating baby pangolin pictures and learn interesting facts about these unique creatures. Discover why baby pangolins are worth protecting.
Many animals have no bones; instead they wear their skeleton on the outside, where it also serves as armor. So why do humans have their bones on the inside, leaving their soft flesh exposed and unprotected? Exoskeletons, or outer skeletons, are great for small animals, like insects. But on larger animals, heavy armor makes it hard to move. One evolutionary solution is to replace big, heavy plates of armor with small, flexible plates or scales.

Unless your job is directly related to discovering, studying, or tending to exotic wildlife, it is safe to say that most of the time, you only see unique animals on TV. The thing is, there is way, way more to discover, and that’s the good news! With hundreds of thousands of species inhabiting our planet, there will always be a new friend to meet and learn about.

Not sure what this cute little critter is? Then let us introduce you to the pangolin. They've been around for about 80 million years and they're the only mammals in the world that are covered in scales. Their tongue can be longer than their bodies and they can also let off a foul-smelling odor like skunks when in danger. The word 'pangolin' comes from the Malay word 'pengguling', which means "rolling up". This is a reference to the pangolin's habit of rolling into a ball like a pill bug…

Dzanga Bai is a Garden of Eden in the dense Central African Rainforests. It is a clearing in the middle of nowhere, with a tree platform, where large herds of Forest Elephant (especially bulls in musth ready to fight and looking for fertile females) and other species, such as Sitatunga, Bongo, Red Forest Buffalo and even Lowland Gorilla come to drink, feed, search for salt and socialize. It is quite an amazing spectacle for even the most seasoned African traveller. Safari, Buffalo, Central African, African Rainforest, Lowland, Rainforests, Congo Rainforest, Central, Species
