World Pangolin Day, 20 February 2016


This video is called Orphaned Cape Pangolin baby pulling a tongue.

From Pangolins.org:

The fifth annual World Pangolin Day will be celebrated on 20 February 2016!

World Pangolin Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in February.

World Pangolin Day is an opportunity for pangolin enthusiasts to join together in raising awareness about these unique mammals — and their plight. Pangolin numbers are rapidly declining in Asia and Africa.

The demand for pangolins comes mostly from China, where pangolin scales are unfortunately believed to be a cure-all of sorts and pangolin flesh is considered a delicacy. In Vietnam, pangolins are frequently offered at restaurants catering to wealthy patrons who want to eat rare and endangered wildlife. There is no evidence to support claims regarding medicinal properties of pangolin scales or any other part of the pangolin.
