This critter is totally squee, but what is it? Looks a lot like an armadillo... except furry... with humongous claws... Help me get to the bottom of this mystery squeeps!
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.
Whoever guesses the weight of the otter most accurately wins bragging rights for the rest of their life!
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!
Farewell widdle scaly anteater, it has been fun hanging out with you this week. You make the world seem a little more magical and of course squee!
