Happy World Pangolin Day!

Once again the third Saturday in February marks World Pangolin Day, a celebration of the eight different species of pangolin, four of which are found in Asia, and four in Africa. Despite looking ready for battle, these intriguing mammals, also known as scaly anteaters, are only likely to wage war against colonies of ants and termites, their favourite food!

Check out our Spotlight On: Pangolins to learn more about these weird and wonderful creatures!
