Pangolins are the only mammals alive today that have bodies covered with thick, keratin scales - the same substance human nails are made from! It's no wonder this scaly squee has many nicknames like "scaly anteater", or "living pine cone", etc.

This nervous baby pangolin is just along for the ride on mama's tail, still trying to figure out how to roll into a proper ball!

This scaly creature is almost too squee to be true! What is he? An armored anteater? A dragon? I just have to find out!

I don't know about you squeeps, but I think pangolins resemble what I imagine a squee, baby dragon would look like. Perhaps they even contributed to the ancient legends!
