Journey To Science
The pangolin is a very interesting animal, not for its unique body shape and appearance, and not even for its behavior. This animal is the most poached and illegally trafficked mammal. There have been over 1 million pangolins killed in the past decade. They are poached for their overlapping scales that are used for traditional medicine, fashion accessories, and even as a high-end cuisine. In the past three months over 11,000 pangolians have been trafficked. This is very sad and unfair for these innocent animals.
