Inktober 13: Guarded

The Sunda pangolin (Manis javanica) is a scaled mammal native to Singapore and Southeast Asia, but the great demand for its flesh and scales has left it critically and depressingly endangered. A few years ago, astonishingly, one even paid an (unexpected) visit to NUS! I feel so helpless in the face of such loss though: this is such an amazing animal, so unlike anything we city folks are used to. Yet this shy, native Singaporean and Southeast Asian will probably dwindle along with what little wilderness we have left.

Here is a baby pangolin, guarding its mummy's tail, in case, you know, anyone tries to steal it.

Pangolin is nocturnal, coming out at night to hunt for ants and termites. They have poor eyesight and so rely on smell. We are pleased to inform you our animals are safe at the zoo after the earthquake. 
Never buy pangolin meat or scales. When the buying stops, the killing can too. #savepangolin www.bali-zoo.com (Photo: @nyat_kenyat) .

Pangolins look like mini dinosaurs as they sometimes walk on their back legs, because their front claws are too long and sharp to walk on 🤣 #WorldPangolinDay

El pangolín es un mamífero que cuenta con grandes escamas que cubren gran parte de su cuerpo, las cuales usa como armadura cuando se siente amenzado enrollandose en forma de bola. Debido a su escaso sentido de la vista este animal tiene más agudos los sentidos del oído y olfato. Tiene un hocico afilado con una pequeña boca sin dientes y con una lengua larga que le sirve en conjunto con sus garras para romper los nidos de los insectos. Muchos lo pueden confundir con el armadillo pero son diferentes. El pangolín habita en África y Asia, mientras que el armadillo en Sudamérica y América Central ¿Te parecen interesantes? <<<<< ➡🔎🐾🐜🍃 >>>>> #datoalpelo #pangolins #pangolin #datos #curiosidades #interesante

Stunning stunning work by @joelsartore. And I love reading about each species.
Repost from @joelsartore using @RepostRegramApp - Happy World Pangolin Day from this mother pangolin and her baby, Opal! These unique looking mammals have tongues as long as their bodies, a prehensile tail, and no teeth! Though their scales may look like something out of a sci-fi movie, they’re actually made of the same material as our fingernails. In many traditional cultures, there is a highly misguided belief that these scales contain therapeutic properties, which has resulted in the poaching of millions of pangolins in the past decade. Now, with Asian pangolins becoming increasingly rare, smugglers have started to turn their attention to African pangolins. Despite being given the strongest international protections, smuggled scales from approximately 110,000 poached African pangolins have been seized just in the past year.
These incredible animals are now threatened with extinction, but thankfully many programs have been initiated to help save them. The two white-bellied tree pangolins (Phataginus tricuspis) pictured reside at @PangolinConservation in Florida, and belong to a collaborative conservation effort called the Pangolin Consortium, where they are also implementing projects to allow the public to engage in pangolin conservation. To find out more about how you can help save pangolins in the wild, click the links in the bios of @PangolinConservation and @VietnamWildlife!

When pangolins curl into a tight ball they are nearly impenetrable to would be predators! That's one of the many things that makes them cool.

Africa wild life trust is passionate about the conservation of all endangered species. World Pangolin Day is an opportunity for pangolin enthusiasts to join together in raising awareness about these unique mammals — and their plight. Pangolin numbers are rapidly declining in Asia and Africa.
The demand for pangolins comes mostly from China, where pangolin scales are unfortunately believed to be a cure-all of sorts and pangolin flesh is considered a delicacy. In Vietnam, pangolins are frequently offered at restaurants catering to wealthy patrons who want to eat rare and endangered wildlife. There is no evidence to support claims regarding medicinal properties of pangolin scales or any other part of the pangolin.

#worldpangolinday this is what a #pangolin #trap looks like! Poachers set the trap up outside the pangolins burrow, in this case a hollow tree, the string in the floor triggers a wire spring action which tightens around the pangolins neck or any limbs the may be in place of that loop.

Check out one of the coolest animals we’ve ever seen: the ground pangolin. There are 8 pangolin species in the world. Four in Africa and four in Asia. I never expected to see one of these unique mammals in the wild because they are so heavily trafficked for Chinese medicine that their numbers have plummeted. .
Fun facts: .
1. They have no teeth and their stomachs are plated with scales so they can grind up the thousands of ants each day by swallowing rocks. Kind of like birds! 🐣
.
2. They are the only mammal with scales. It’s made of keratin, same stuff as fingernails. 💅
.
3. They are not related to armadillos. They are most closely related to carnivores. These creatures seem similar because of their specialized diet on ants and termites. 🐜

Off the back of World Pangolin Day last month on 17 February, we wanted to start sharing our love of pangolins whilst raising awareness around the imminent danger they face.

#DidYouKnow that the pangolin is the world’s most trafficked mammal and that recent estimates claim that sales now account for 20% of the entire wildlife black market with 100,000 pangolins captured each year.
.
Please help us introduce the pangolin to those that are unaware of its existence so that we are able to join together and do our part to try put an end to the brutal poaching and illegal trafficking of these incredibly shy and extraordinary creatures.

That hallucinated woman staring at the pangolin next to her is me. This awesome picture was taken in @Tswalu by my husband @andreagalliph, the best pic he ever took of me. Where I also look better than in all the others he ever shot 😂😂!
Anyhow, how did I end up with a baby pangolin sniffing my legs, my cap and stepping over my sunglasses is easy: things like this can happen only in Tswalu Kalahari ( wanna know more? Write me!) We waited a couple of hours for this little pangolin to get out of the bush he was taking a nap in. We were sitting on the ground close by, with cameras ready. When he woke up, with a whole plain to walk in he simply decided to walk towards me, arriving to touch my leg to sniff it, and he gave me a heart attack! 
That storm of emotion he caused did not produce a single sound from me, not a: Aaawww! Not a Ca***!! ( bilingual idioms 😆). That’s so professional!! 😏
But after a few weeks I am still smiling! 😍😊

So a couple of Saturdays ago it was #WorldPangolinDay. 
It took me back to public art exhibition I co-curated a couple of years back with @rehemachachage called Impose/Expose: Art Revealing Space. One of the artists John Selemani produced a performative piece on the plight of the #pangolin in local communities across #Tanzania. In #Swahili it is known as #kakakuona and they are both respected and feared because of their status as foretellers and bringer of omens. Here's a 10sec clip of the performance on the streets of #Dar.

Regrann from @nhm_wpy -  For #WorldPangolinDay we’re showcasing the work of #WPY53 finalist @adriansteirn which tells the story of conservationists working to aid the recovery of pangolins rescued from poachers in Zimbabwe. 
Poachers kill hundreds of thousands of pangolins each year, largely because the hard scales covering their bodies are thought to be medicinal in some communities. Despite international laws protecting the pangolin, the killing continues. 
We’ll be sharing more footage and images from this story later today in honour of this threatened and often overlooked species.

You can see Adrian’s awarded image from this project in the #WPY53 exhibition, open at the @natural_history_museum, London until 28 May 2018.

#WorldPangolinDay is celebrated on the third Saturday of February all over the world and is an opportunity for people who care about the environment and conservation, to join together in raising awareness about these unique scaly mammals - and the threats they face. Sadly pangolin numbers are rapidly decreasing in both Asia and Africa.

This year, World Pangolin day was celebrated on Saturday 17th February, an ideal day for our enthusiastic Zambian and Zimbabwean Eco-Club students to get together to participate in a morning of fun-filled, interactive activities celebrating this imperiled mammal, its attributes and understanding that if they, the youth, don't stand together to stop its persecution, they will become extinct.

Do you know? Temminck's Ground Pangolin was named from Coenraad Jacob Temminck (March 31th in 1778 - January 30th in 1858). His name is also given to many birds, many fishes and many other animals.

#Pangolins are the world’s most trafficked mammal and it's estimated that up to 2.7 million pangolins are removed from the wild every year!

Today is #WorldPangolinDay! Most people have never even heard of a pangolin, but they are one of the cutest, and most endangered, species in the world! What sets these “scaly anteaters” apart is the fact that they are the only mammal completely covered in scales. Their scales are made of keratin, just like our hair and fingernails, but unfortunately some believe they have “medicinal” value. To make it worse, their meat is considered a status symbol, making them a delicacy. Thus, millions of pangolins have been killed for their scales, and are the most illegally trafficked mammal in the WORLD. IFAW is leading efforts to help secure greater protections for pangolins by advocating for greater protections for all 8 species under the #ESA.

@brentstirton: Today is #WorldPangolinDay, here's one being sold on the road in #Cameroon. This is the world's most trafficked animal, a harmless, docile creature that eats ants with a tongue as long as it's body. It's scales are highly desirable in Asian medicine, one of the main reasons is their supposed ability to help with lactation for breastfeeding women, despite no scientific evidence for this. Over a million #pangolin have lost their lives to the trade in the last ten years.

All eight species are considered threatened or endangered due to habitat destruction and for being used for "medicinal" purposes.

Pangolins. One of the most elusive and shy animals on the planet - but quite tragically, they are also the single most trafficked animal on the planet. Why? Due to the belief throughout Eastern Asia, that the scales that cover the bodies of these adorable little mammals hold some magical medicinal powers when ingested. Ironically, however, pangolin scales are made of nothing more than keratin, the very same thing that’s found in rhino horn AND our very own human hair and fingernails.
The good news is, if we work together, we have the ability to turn things around. By raising awareness, education, signing/circulating online petitions, to donating funds to one of the many reputable and amazing organizations on the ground who are fighting so hard to keep pangolins safe, or by sharing their plight far and wide on our social media platforms - we can all do our part to ensure that we don’t lose these adorable and scaly little creatures forever. ——————————————— #Repost @savingthesurvivors

World Pangolin Day is an opportunity for Pangolin enthusiasts to join together in raising awareness about these unique mammals — and their plight. Numbers of all 8 species of Pangolin are rapidly declining across Asia and Africa, due to the demand for their flesh and scales, particularly in China and Indochina. Despite a total ban on international trade in Pangolins, large numbers are still being hunted and smuggled across borders.

The Sunda Pangolin is native to Singapore, and has been recorded from many forest patches across the island. The forests of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Central Catchment Nature Reserve, Western Catchment, Pulau Ubin and Pulau Tekong are among the known strongholds for this species. Pangolins use their powerful front claws to open termite and ant nests, and then use their long, sticky tongues to lick up the insects. When threatened, a Pangolin curls up into a ball, protecting its vulnerable underside and relying on its scaly armour. The 'scales' are actually made up of keratin like hair and nails.

Pangolins occasionally wander out of the forest into nearby urban areas, where some meet an unfortunate end after getting hit by vehicles. Sadly, the armour that allows the Pangolin to ward off attacks by tigers and other predators, and its instinct of curling up into a ball when frightened, is of no use against cars. Combined with habitat loss and fragmentation, this has led to the Sunda Pangolin being classified as Critically Endangered in Singapore.

Elsewhere in Southeast Asia, heavy hunting has resulted in a steep decline in many Sunda Pangolin populations, leading to the species being declared globally Critically Endangered as well.

Feliz #díamundialdelpangolín #WorldPangolinDay! El pangolín es el único mamífero que está completamente cubierto por escamas, las cuales usa para protegerse de los depredadores. 
Se alimenta de termitas, hormigas y larvas, por medio de su lengua pegajosa (carece de dientes). Aunque los pangolines están protegidos bajo las leyes internacionales, son unos de los mamíferos más traficados del mundo.

What's the only mammal covered in scales? What is currently the most illegally trafficked mammal in Asia? And what can eat up to 200,000 ants and termites a day?
You guessed correct, it's the Pangolin! These curious little creatures are so sparse that some cultures believe that seeing them will bring good luck! This awe-some prehistoric mammal is facing extinction as, heart breakingly, the only predator its scales and ability to curl up in a ball won't protect it from are Homo Sapiens. Today is World Pangolin day and all the awareness should be raised for these unique creatures!
What you can do?- go to WWF and donate to help save yet another species at the brink of extinction!
