Giant Pangolin

Pangolins, members of the family Manidae, are the only scaled mammals in existence. They are very primitive and have no teeth, but are insectivores and collect insects with a long, sticky tongue. They exist in central and western Africa, living in savannahs, rainforests, and forests. This is a giant pangolin. This pangolin feeds on ants and termites.  Members of the giant pangolin species measure up to five feet, and can weigh up to 33 kg.
