This is The World’s Most Trafficked Mammal

And if you do then I apologize profusely. Found over large parts of Africa and Asia, over a million of these scaly creatures have been illegally trafficked over the last 10 years.

The Pangolin is being poached at an alarming rate and being sent to the asian market frozen. People don’t want them as pets, but as food to eat when a business deal goes well. The price of the meat can go up into the hundreds of dollars per kilo.

However the plight of the Pangolin has been flying under the radar and people are only just coming around to the fact that it’s getting poached to extinction. You might hear about an old lion getting shot. But you probably haven’t heard any outrage over thousands of frozen Pangolin being shipped to Singapore.
