Jane the pangolin I watched a documentary about these sweet little creatures last year and fell totally in love with them. Jane was the November 2018 installment of the Toft Ed's Animal club, and the last one of my subscription. Definitely ended on a firm favourite #toft #toft_uk #toftuk #toftyarn #edsanimals #edwardsmenagerie #edsanimalclub #janethepangolin #pangolin #crochet #crochettersofinstagram

Passed by some beautiful scenery on our way to & through Scotland. Visiting family we got to meet some awesome dogs (& we all know how important to life dogs are.) The food was absolutely wonderful (especially the Balmoral Chicken I had in a restaurant in East Kilbride 😋) I was also lucky to get some brilliant birthday presents (not all shown.) . . #mozzarellasticks  #balmoralchicken  #ricepudding . #cova  #crepe  #supremecrepe . #steak  #cremebrulee  #sorbet . #monsterbookofmonsters  #dinosaursocks  #rabbits  #guineapigs  #booktoken  #pangolin  #pangolinring  #patrickmavros  #pangolincollection . #scotland  #eastkilbride  #dogs  #dogsofinstagram #scenery #beautifulscenery #food #foodie #foodofinstagram #birthday #birthdaypresents #gifts
💙 Posted @withrepost@natgeo Photo by @brentstirton | Harare, Zimbabwe: I was privileged to spend time with the world’s best pangolin caregivers at the #tikkihywoodtrust for an upcoming Nat Geo story. I saw an extraordinary #relationship unfold as these men helped rescued, traumatized #pangolin find ants and termites to eat and kept them safe from predators and poachers. Pangolins, the world’s most trafficked animal in the illegal wildlife trade, are extraordinarily endangered. The Tikki Hywood Trust undertakes public awareness campaigns, trains law enforcement and judiciary personnel, conducts research, and rehabilitates pangolins confiscated from the illegal trade. They operate with partners across Africa and advise in Asia. A recently opened extension #tikkihywoodfoundation .cameroon is doing great work in one of the epicenters of the illegal pangolin trade. Founder Lisa Hywood is seen as a global expert on caring for pangolins in captivity, and along with partner Ellen Connelly, they represent an extraordinary example of how to care for animals. The trust also engages with other organizations and governments throughout Africa to highlight the plight of pangolins, raising awareness of their conservation status, as well as implementing conservation actions. Many of their activities are not covered by research grants, and they rely on sponsors and donations to continue their work. It is estimated that over a million pangolin have been lost in the last ten years, from a population that we have never counted. We have no idea how many remain, and we know no one has ever successfully bred these fragile animals in captivity. We are losing these extraordinary animals so quickly to the illegal Asian market that they may disappear before we can truly appreciate them. #conservation #Endangered #antipoaching #WildlifeCrime #Africa

I have recently rediscovered Pangolins so y’all get to enjoy them too #art #artistsoninstagram #Pangolin #dailydraws
Despite all its fascination, it’s no long since I’ve known this odd warlike squamous mammal that curls up as a ball when it feels under threat. Instead of teeths, it has a sticky tongue as long as its body and a bulletproof stomach where it piles up pebbles to grind the seven million ants and termites that eats within a year. Solitary, nocturnal and half blind, its brilliant smell mades up its lack of sight. I´ve known it’s name at the same time hazte bad news: Pangolin is one of the most endangered species.  Unfortunately, neither its pineapple camouflage strategy, neither the stinky skunk like acid it expels, help the pangolin to stop the massive hunting that maintains this especies in critical danger of extinction because of the high price of its meat in Asia, considered as a feast, and because of the value of its squamas, attributed to have healing properties. *  #pangolin #especiesenpeligrodeextincion #endangeredspecies #inkdrawings #dibujoatinta #stoppangolinextintion

Our work with the Wild Warriors program in Vietnam promises a new perspective on wildlife. Lauren lee, a mentor of these courses visited the Wildhand team at the beginning of March for the start of their program. During this visit, the team was on their way to creating their second lesson for the students on bears and bear bile-a hot topic that can be found in the areas surrounding the school. We focus on making using education as a tool for combating human-wildlife issues like trafficking. Other local NGOs like Animals Asia has also provided more educational materials and resources like synthetic botanic bear bile. The students are always eager to learn in these interactive courses and prove that their is still hope for change! #education #wildlifedemand #awareness #vietnam #africa #pangolin #bearbile #rhinohorn #ivory #elephants

The evolution of my Sleepy Pangolin pins! 🥰 Although most of my work is digital, a lot of my designs start out on a sketchbook page. 🌸 I don’t think I have a preference between traditional and digital, I sort of bounce back and forth between them.

. The original post says it all. Please read and support the @int.anti.poaching.foundation and any organizations that work to protect endangerd and highly exploited and poached animals like the pangolins. . . Reposted from @int.anti.poaching.foundation - The Pangolin, sometimes referred to as the armored ant-eater, is the most heavily poached wild mammal in the world. Their unfortunate human-created status has even been featured by Guinness World Records – Yet, many people don’t even know they exist! Pangolins are timid, slow-moving creatures covered in scales made from keratin (like our hair or nails). When a pangolin is threatened it will roll into a ball and relies on its scaly armor to protect itself. Their sharp scales may deter predators such as lions, but unfortunately their instinctive defenses do not work against humans. Superstition and greed drives intense poaching of this uniquely adapted animal. The pangolin is most often poached for its meat and scales. Although the plight of the pangolin is dire, IAPF's work alongside other local stakeholders is helping to reverse their misfortune.

A pesar de lo fascinante que es, no he conocido hasta hace bien poco a este extraño mamífero cubierto de escamas con aspecto de guerrero medieval, que se acoraza enroscándose en modo de bola cuando se siente amenazado. A falta de dientes, tiene una lengua pegajosa tan larga como su cuerpo y un estómago a prueba de balas en el que acumula guijarros para triturar los siete millones de hormigas y termitas que consume al año. Solitario, nocturno y cegato, sufre su falta de visión con un olfato muy desarrollado. He conocido su nombre a la vez que la mala noticia: el pangolín es uno de los principales animales en alto peligro de extinción por tráfico de especies. Desafortunadamente, ni su estrategia de pasar por piña o alcachofa andante, ni el ácido maloliente que libera a lo mofeta, le han servido para parar la caza masiva que le mantiene en peligro crítico por la alta cotización en Asia de su carne, considerada un manjar, y por el valor de sus escamas, a las que se atribuyen propiedades curativas mágicas. Según uno de los estudios más recientes de la Universidad de Sussex, son más de 2,7 millones los pangolines cazados en un año. Todo en este insectívoro es cautivador y quedan muchísimas incógnitas sobre su naturaleza y comportamiento sin descubrir. Ojalá se consiga parar el ritmo brutal de caza y que permitamos alargar por muchos años la vida de esta especie tan misteriosa. #pangolin #inkdrawings #etchingdrawings #dibujosatinta #tinteando #savethepangolin #
After this make lion chased a leopard off its Kill ,he decided to take his frustration out on a pangolin . What a sighting. Once in a lifetime . I'm glad to see the pangolin walked away unscathed .

跟據小弟之前貼的story,看來有比較多的人覺得 #穿山甲 的英文是 #armadillo 。其實穿山甲英文應該是 #pangolin ,而 armadillo 則是 #犰狳 。大家可以參考:https://wuo-wuo.com/report/issue/64-comparison-and-similar-animals/649-i-was-with-him-is-not-the-same-pangolin-anteater-or-armadillo.html 都不知道為什麼那麼少人參加小弟的問卷調查呢⋯⋯😓 #savepangolins

Meet Phlegmb! My dnd character! He's a 16 y'o half-elf charlatan who likes to live dangerously ;) has quite the hand in magic if i may say huhuh and also his pet Lillabethe! She's a mix of the pink fairy armadillo as well as the pangolin :3 she can curl up to hold loot (very good for thiefery, yes?) and since her scales are known to be magic, anyone who tries to take her from Phlegmb immediately faints :) #drewathing #dungeonsanddragons #dnd #halfelf #pangolin #pinkfairyarmadillo #armadillo #pink Edit: # its 5.08am and im dying lmao

#Repost from @pangolinandco with @regram.app ... ⁣ The next photo is something that concerns me. For a long time if you searched #pangolin on Instagram you would get the message in image two. That was fine by me. It gives everyone a little heads up that this is a sensitive topic and that you should keep an eye out for crooks. Great. I am on board.⁣ ⁣ But then the third image happened a few days ago. Now, you can no longer see recent photos or stories of #pangolin . ⁣ ⁣ I think their motive is good. The rational is that Instagram is worried illegal pangolin sales are being conducted through their platform and therefore they wish to prevent such transactions.⁣ ⁣ But is that what is really happening here? I don’t think so. ⁣ ⁣ I have followed #pangolin almost daily for about a year now and you know what I have seen? I have seen fantastic wildlife photos, heroes saving a species, beautiful illustrations of an illusive creature, intriguing trivia, donation campaigns for this important cause, groovy tattoos, ground breaking news, rescue stories, and a whole lot of my favorite animal. You know what I have never seen? Pangolin scales for sale.⁣ ⁣ But even if someone actually did try to sell scales on Instagram, call me crazy, but wouldn’t that be better than them using a shady dark web site that no one can find? Wouldn’t it make law enforcements’ job that much easier?⁣ ⁣ Bottom line: You can’t treat #pangolin like # drugs or # porn. It is not something we want to shelter our children from. We need to make pangolins cute, and cool, and trendy, and known, not the other way round. Cultural awareness and education is key to saving these species and allowing people easy access to these images is a big part of that. We need to promote images of pangolins, not suppress them. ⁣ ⁣ In the meantime we will be using #pangolins and #pangolinpics .⁣ ⁣ Consider sharing if you agree with me.⁣ ⁣ And hey, if you’d like to see more images of these beautiful creatures, and maybe learn a thing or two about them follow @pangolinandco. ⁣ ⁣ Also feel free to tag us in any and all pangolin pics! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #instagram
Global Conservation Force has been focusing heavily on education in all project areas. Last week, we visited Hanoi, Vietnam, to help mentor a new project called Wild Warriors. This new conservation education program consists of 10 free lessons where elementary kids can learn about wildlife in their country which is not currently offered. The program was created by a group called Wildhand, a local organization located in Vietnam. Thuy An elementary school is situated near Ba Vi national park which houses hundreds of endangered endemic species. This school has given us the opportunity to utilize their classroom on weekends with around 80 students attending each lesson. We are excited to see the huge differences this program can make for local species and our future generation. #education #vietnam #wildlife #rhino #pangolin #bearbile #sharkfin #tiger #elephant #rhinohorn #ivory

Drew pangolins for the first time recently! They are basically real life sandshrews! 😻 This was also suggested by @andreakoala !! Andrea, always comes through with the good ideas! #pangolin #sandshrew
One of the arguably most adorable, and one of my favorite creatures in the animal kingdom, is also one of the most poached and trafficked. World Animal Investigation estimates some 57,000 pangolins were killed in 2016. Primarily they are killed for their bushmeat and their parts discarded like garbage. It’s our job to protect animals from extinction, not accelerate the rate. All animals deserve protection, even the ugly ones 😏 #wildlifephotography #pangolin #preserve PC: @noelle.alcorn
