Is that an IRL Sandshrew! Time to become a Pokémon Master!
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.
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!
