Happy World Pangolin Day, readers!
In case you aren’t aware, World Pangolin Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in February to increase awareness of this little guy:
Related to armadillos, anteaters, and sloths, pangolins are scaled creatures with long sticky tongues and impressive claws.
Various subspecies of pangolin are adapted for swimming or climbing trees!
There are severe human-based threats to pangolins; they are hunted for use in food, medicine, fashion, and more.
There’s good news, however! Conservation efforts are in place, and awareness is being raised each year with World Pangolin Day (today marks the fourth annual celebration)!
