  Sunda Pangolin

 

Vietnam

A Sunda Pangolin at the Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station in the proximity of Saigon. When it sleeps, it curls up into a ball. The scales, though meant to protect it, have led to the animal having become endangered, as the Chinese use them in traditional medicine. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
