Sunda Pangolin

The Malayan pangolin, also known as the Sunda pangolin or the scaly anteater, is a peculiar and fascinating animal that inhabits the tropical forests of Southeast Asia. It is the largest pangolin of all pangolin species and can grow up to 1.5 meters in length and weigh up to 40 kilograms.

The Malayan pangolin is distinguished by its body covered with scales and its small, pointed head. These scales are their main defense against predators and are made of keratin, the same material that makes up our nails and hair. When threatened, the pangolin rolls up into a protective ball, exposing only its hard scales to the outside.

Unlike other mammals, the Malayan pangolin feeds exclusively on ants and termites, using its long, sticky tongue to scoop them up. In addition, it has sharp and powerful claws that it uses to dig burrows and find its prey.

The Malayan pangolin is an endangered species due to poaching and habitat loss. It is used in traditional medicine and is considered a delicacy in some Asian countries, which has led to a drastic decline in its wild populations. It is important to note that pangolins are shy and reserved animals that are rarely seen in the wild. While it is possible to spot one on safari, viewing is very difficult due to its nocturnal behavior and dense rainforest habitat.
