“Pangolins are the only mammals completely covered in scales and they use those scales to protect themselves from predators in the wild. Pangolins eat ants, termites and larvae (grubs) and are often known as “the scaly anteater”. Because they have no teeth, pangolins pick up food with their sticky tongues, which can reach lengths greater than the animal’s body!
“Pangolinii sunt singurele mamifere acoperite în întregime de solzi şi folosesc aceste cântare pentru a se proteja de prădătorii din sălbăticie. Pangolinii mânanca furnici, termite şi larve şi sunt adesea cunoscute sub numele de “anteater scasa”. Deoarece nu au dinți, pangolinele iau mâncare cu limbile lor lipicioase, care uneori pot ajunge la lungimi mai mari decât corpul animalului.
