The pangolin is a nocturnal species of mammal that has a size of 12-39 inches, with females smaller than males. When threatened, they roll up into a ball with their scales protecting them, and can spray an awful-smelling acid to fend off predators.

Diet Edit

Since they don't have teeth, they eat ants and termites using their long tongue covered in sticky saliva that can catch their prey.

Reproduction Edit

Femle African pangolins usually give birth to a single offspring at a time, but the Asiatic species can give birth from 1-3. At birth, their weight is 80–450 g (3–18 ounces), and their scales are soft. The young cling to the mother's tail as she moves about, although in burrowing species, they remain in the burrow for the first 2–4 weeks of their life.
