How heavy is a #pangolin ? It varies a lot by species, ranging from the 2kg White-bellied pangolin to the 35kg Giant ground pangolin! #wildlife #pangolins
Up close and personal. Spotted a rare Pangolin in Tswalu, South Africa! #seenandlovedit

So amazing !! Right .. it’s an endangered species... Hi I’m a Pangolins I have large, protective keratin scales covering their skin; they are the only known mammals with this feature. They live in hollow trees or burrows, depending on the species. Pangolins are nocturnal, and their diet consists of mainly ants and termites, which they capture using their long tongues. They tend to be solitary animals, meeting only to mate and produce a litter of one to three offspring, which are raised for about two years. #pangolin

Happy #worldrhinoday ! In Africa, the locals say that every rhino sighting is a miracle. It’s so rare because the next day it could be dead for it’s horn. Horns are now worth $1M USD on the black market and desperate poachers remain persistent, corrupting others in their crimes, bringing #elephants , #rhinos , and #pangolins to the brink of extinction. Traditional Chinese medicine is a HUGE SCAM and believers need to stop and wake up. #easternmedicine #traditionalmedicine #CONSERVATION #ENDANGERED #wildlife #rhino #elephant #pangolin #wildlifeconservation #africa #southafrica #krugernationalpark #krugerpark @krugernationalpark #wild #animals #pachyderm #saveanimals #rhinohorn #poaching #illegal #nature #naturelovers #planetearth

Asia countries are definitely destroying wildlife and nature. For Greed and ignorance. #shameonchina #Repost @env.wildlife ・・・ #pangolins are shy, nocturnal #animals . In an ideal #world very few of us would ever see a #pangolin . But demand for meat and scales in #Vietnam and #China are pushing these enigmatic #creatures to the edge of #extinction . These ones were intercepted alive and rescued. Others are not so fortunate :( #repost #regram #animal #wildlife #love #photooftheday #animalkingdom #nature #wild
🚲 Axol and Java had such a wonderful day exploring Amsterdam!

It's #WorldRhinoDay , so here's me on Penny's lap! Both pangolins and rhinos are poached for our keratin (scales and horns, respectively) when it's really the same stuff that humans' fingernails are made of! Ridiculous, right? This has to stop. #pangolin #pangolinlove #savepangolins #rhino #saverhinos #againstpoaching #conservation #endangeredspecies

Happy Saturday! So sadly Dab train No.64 has to make its final stop. I have some cool stuff planned for next week that I'd like to do. But don't let that stop your happiness. Sometimes happiness has to be created, especially when you can't do what normally gives you happiness, like when you are at work or school. Sometimes little stuff can just be the right medicine for when you need that smile to get you through the day until you can do what you truly love. I know my friend Archantael, aka @nazrealist here knows that, and him and his wife try to do that with others. Sometimes that's the best gift, even if you give them a small gift, the power to bring a smile is probably the greatest power of all. You all know that's what I do what I do, and I love this power, because putting smiles on faces, seeing their day change, it makes me feel like the hero I want to be. Not even a hero, maybe an angel. And if Fox dabbing does this, than Fox will keep dabbing! So I hope this picture of @nazrealist and myself brings some smiles to you all today, and I hope you all truly have an amazing and fantastic day! As always, stay foxy! And that is what Fox says! #starfox #starfoxcosplay #foxmccloud #foxmccloudcosplay #supersmashbros #supersmashbroscosplay #nintendo #nintendocosplay #fursona #fursonafandom #fox #pangolin #furry #fursuit #fursuiter #furrypride #furryfandom #furryfriends #positivity #positivevibes #dabbing #dabbingfox
Woke up with this news all over the internet: “BRITAIN is facing the coldest and harshest winter for almost a decade with heavy, early snowfall threatening to blanket the nation by Christmas.” 11 days since I came here. Stuck in my bed with a fever next to a bin full of tissue (yes my mucus production!) 🤧 then I slightly turn my head to check on my fellows.. Tako is warm enough with his beanie collection.. and my bobble head bf is eating ice-cream yas 😹 I hope to survive this winter ❄️ to go back to the tropics.. 。。。 #pangolin #savepangolins #manatee #savethemanatees #wildlife #conservation #endangered #species #nature #uk #england #kent #canterbury
My rhino friend is scared about the future. Rhino horn and pangolin scales are keratin like human fingernails so why do people kill us for it? #worldrhinoday

Day 38: ahh, I believe we’re all caught up with the days. Almost at 100 followers. Ik I’m (DEFINITELY) not close to being one of those big same picture accounts but I want to. This isn’t “just for fun” like my bio says, my goal is to make people aware of the pangolin situation bc they’re critically endangered animals. 👊🏻#pangolinarmy #pangolinawareness #helpspreadtheword #pangolin 👊🏻

So instead of uploading P for Pangolin I almost uploaded my Q image, so Ive mindflooded myself on which one I had to upload. Also I had to go back and edit the others as I got confused which number each one is. Pheew. Still enjoying the #johnvernonlord challenge for @illustrationhq . Like the jaguarundi this one I was insure of the base colours but it worked once I layered up the shadings. #tamsinadleyillustration #illustration #drawing #illustratorsoninstagram #artistsoninstagram #artwork #art #drawingchallenge #drawingaday #dailyart #animalillustration #animals #animaldrawing #pangolin #oneinchdrawing #inchdrawing #1x1 #1inchdrawing
Pangolins are being poached illegally for old world medicinal practices and bush meat. Their meat and scales are in high demand in countries like China and Vietnam. Their meat is considered a delicacy and pangolin scales are used in traditional medicine and folk remedies. Even though they may look like a reptile, they are indeed a mammal. They are mistaken for armadillos and anteaters often, but even though they share similarities, they are completely their own species. 20% of proceeds from purchases of artwork are donated to conservation organizations that help save wildlife Proceeds help fund anti-poaching units, ranger programs, research and animal care @restnamibia @rhinomanrangers @globalconservationforce @lubeebatconservancy #bongosurveillanceproject On The Edge Conservation Art Series Currently on display in Old Town Temecula at @silergallery FREE TO THE PUBLIC More information & to purchase artwork/merchandise supporting wildlife:🤳🏼Link In Bio 🤳🏼 #painting #artshow #silergallery #art #conservation #rhinomanrangers #conservationartist #rhino #globalconservationcorps #futurerangers #portrait #pangolin #artcollector #acrylicpainting #gallery #ontheedge2018 #temecula #artist #artistsoninstagram #artistreception #zookeeper @audubonsociety @auduboninstitute @leonardodicapriofdn @wildlifeartcurator @vietnamwildlife

Indian pangolin. This fuckin dude took a lot of time; the scales have a very specific layout and it fucked me up. Anyway these guys are really sweet and i believe they are actually poached :( im sure there are other factors to them being endangered- likely caused by humans which is sad because theyre so sweet. Also fun fact there are many different types of pangolin, all with slightly different features to distinguish them. I swear in all my reference photos they look like theyre praying. • • • #pangolin #indianpangolin #endangered #endangeredanimals #animals #animalart #doyouhavetimeforourlordandsaviourjesuschrist #scales #scaly #mammal #activist #activism #animalactivist #animalactivism #animalart #watercolour #watercolourartist #watercolourandpen #illustration #illustrationart #dailypost #dailyart #watercolouranimals #conservationart #conservation

Axol & Friends is proud to welcome Java the Pangolin to the family! Java is Axol’s best friend. Together they adventure the world learning about new plant and animal life while trying to make this planet better for everyone. Java is a character inspired by the pangolin, the world’s most trafficked animal. There’s a lot that needs to change in order to save pangolins, but we are thrilled to join the cause of fighting trafficking (of animals and humans). Java will be available for purchase in early 2019. Stay tuned for more information about Java and ways we can change the world! #axolandfriends #pangolin

Slightly different view of a #pangolin - such cool creatures under huge attack for their scales. #savepangolins #greatermanaexpedition #manapools @greatplainsconservation
📸: @noelle.alcorn Check out Nat Geo Wild's story today to meet Honeybun, a cape pangolin, with one her caretakers, Noelle! Pangolins are one of the most trafficked mammals on the planet. They're often hunted for bush meat, but there's also a demand for their scales in Vietnam and China for use in traditional medicine. When Honeybun and her mother came to @restnamibia the mother was in really bad shape and had clearly been thrown around. They think she wrapped herself around Honeybun to protect her. Now, about two and a half years later, Honeybun is healthy and still with us! #endangered #pangolin #wildlife

Can you believe it? Last Saturday I was at the British Embassy in Beijing with my friends from WWF China. We had a great day raising awareness of pangolins and the illegal wildlife trade.
Regrann from @animals_talk_back - Pangolin... reptile or mammal?☝ Please read‼️ @mikelloretreptiles -This is a white-bellied tree Pangolin. Pangolins are enigmatic insectivore specialists found in parts of Africa and Asia. Their body is covered in scales made of keratin, the same material as fingernails, hair and horn. For centuries these scales have been a major component in many traditional “medicines”, leading them to be relentlessly hunted and collected. This, coupled with being a source of food in remote areas, has lead to Pangolin populations to drop to staggeringly low numbers. Over the past decade a specialized team of scientists has studied and assessed the natural biology of these animals in preparation to begin a successful captive breeding program to ensure the future survival of the species as a whole. They analyzed every possible aspect of their diet, nutritional requirements and breeding behavior and developed a comprehensive plan to keep these animals healthy and happy. ***This is NOT a pet!!! I’m posting this picture to raise awareness about the plight of these animals and to show that there are dedicated individuals who are actively working to conserve them. #pangolin #conservation #savingspecies #savingspeciesfromextinction #wildlife #amazing #wshh #nature #conserve #zoo #zoobaby #cute #gorgeous #beauty #viral #nofilter - - #regrann
Today’s Story from the Museum Floor, by Laura from the Visitor Team takes a closer look at the pangolin. An unusual looking creature that has significance for many cultures across the globe, which has sadly contributed to it becoming the world’s most trafficked animal. .

Tomorrow is World Rhino Day. Did you know that #rhino horn, #pangolin scales and human hair are made up of the same material? – keratin! #worldrhinoday
Art to go on future business cards! They'll be here in early Oct, and will probably change my username around the same time.

Balled up pangolin on the back of calf
A recent visitor to Gonarezhou had the incredible privilege of seeing this baby pangolin with it’s mother whilst she was out foraging for ants in the late afternoon. Pangolins are known to carry their young on their backs like this from the time that the babies are about one month old. But to witness this in the wild is very unusual and special. Pangolin are endangered, and currently have the dubious distinction of being the world’s most trafficked mammal. The Gonarezhou Conservation Trust has formed a partnership with the @tikkihywoodtrust to rewild pangolins confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade, whilst also gathering vital information about this species that can help us safeguard their future. Read more about this project on the Trust’s website at http://gonarezhou.org/conservation/ecological-monitoring/pangolin-project/ Thanks Elsa Bussiere, for sharing this very special sighting with us. . . . . #tikkihywoodfoundation #gonarezhounationalpark #gonarezhou #gonarezhouconservationtrust #pangolin #endangeredspecies #antipoaching #wildlifephotography #photography #wild #special #free #lucky
The Indian Pangolin is one of the least studied endangered species on the planet. Join us on this exciting journey next month (over the extended weekend of 19-21 October) at Jor, Mahabaleshwar to explore the habitat and try to map distribution and gather insights into this animal. For further details and registration, write to kshitij@wildotters.com or check out wildotters.com. Partial scholarships and group discounts may be available. #pangolin #india #wildlife #conservation #tech #habitat #mahabaleshwar #endangeredspecies
In the bush, a rescued pangolin takes a stroll through the trees searching for a place to nap. More importantly, this stroll would not have been possible if it weren’t for the amazing heroes at @johannesburgwildlifevet and @africanpangolinconservation / @_nicci_wright_ for their dedicated hard work to help save these species. If you are looking for an organization to support feel free to connect by following them and see how you can contribute to their non-profit groups. ❤️ #earthfirst #pangolin #conservationmatters
Pangolins are sweet and shy little creatures. They’re also one of the world’s most trafficked animals: every five minutes, a pangolin is snatched from the wild for its scales and/or meat. Because of their tougher-than-nails scaly armor, pangolins are all but invincible in the wild; when threatened, they roll up into a ball that even lions can’t penetrate. However, they are no match for human exploitation — and that’s where we come in. The pangolin is one of the many wild species that our DSWT/KWS De-Snaring Teams are working hard to protect through their daily patrols. In July, our team confiscated 400 pangolin scales and apprehended two people responsible. Seizures and arrests like this serve as a blow to the trade, and also drive home how important it is to have boots on the ground to protect our increasingly vulnerable fauna and flora.

That feeling when the weekend's approaching! Pictured here is the bundle of joy that is the Philippine Pangolin - another species unique to the Palawan group of islands and one that is in danger of extinction before we can even learn more about it. It is one of the eight pangolin species worldwide and one with the smallest range. It's crazy how anyone would want to poach and kill these darlings for 'medicine'.

Ever hear of a pangolin? Me neither, but the kids are pangolin experts thanks to the #wildkratts #balizoo #worldschooling
A shot I NEVER thought I would get! One of the most endangered mammals in Africa. Pangolin. Scaly Anteater. Walking with my guide to see white rhinos and this guy comes cruising by 15 feet away!
El pangolín (del orden Pholidota) es el mamífero más amenazado del mundo. Hay un total de 8 especies, repartidas por el continente africano y asiático. Son unos animales peculiares. Su cuerpo está cubierto de escamas, tienen una larga lengua con la que consiguen atrapar a los pequeños insectos de los que se alimentan, son relativamente veloces, y cuando se sienten amenazados su reacción es enrollarse en una bola, lo cual facilita enormemente su caza. La principal amenaza para estas especies es el ser humano. En África se comen y además se trafica con sus escamas, pero el problema más grave se localiza en China, donde su carne se considera un verdadero manjar. Además, existe la creencia, sobre todo en este país, de que sus escamas contienen multitud de poderes curativos (creencias religiosas y culturales muy antiguas) por lo que estos remedios están muy demandados. Por supuesto, su caza es ilegal. Existen asociaciones y centros de recuperación especializados en pangolines en ambos continentes, aunque son escasos y con pocos recursos. Una de las mayores dificultades que encuentran es conseguir la cría en cautividad de esta especie. Si no se consigue (sólo se ha conseguido en un centro en África) la supervivencia de esta especie será muy muy complicada. Además de la amenaza humana directa a través de la caza, existen otras, como la fragmentación de hábitat (deforestación...) que afecta a numerosas especies en todo el mundo (desde el lince ibérico hasta el oso panda). En definitiva, como siempre, está en manos de la sociedad de consumo cambiar el modelo tanto de producción como del propio consumo, para poder revertir esta situación. Estamos literalmente saqueando y expoliando al planeta, y nadie está pagando los costes ambientales. Tarde o temprano nos tocará hacerlo, y a ver cómo resolvemos la situación. 📸 @natgeo #pangolin #mamifero #mammal #mamiferoamenazado #medioambiente #environment #naturaleza #nature #biodoversidad #biodiversity #planeta #planet #educacionambiental #nationalgeographic #nationalgeographicpicture #photography #instapic #picoftheday #nofilters #likeysuscribe #sitegustapuedesmandarla #sinolaenviasa10amiguistendrasmalasuerte
