Pangolins

 While I have been looking around on the Internet from day by day, I occasionally see some pictures of one weird animal which I used to see it long time ago since I was just a little boy, so I decided to make a quick research on it for just getting to know it better.
It is called Pangolin which normally grows only in Africa and Asia. Its name comes from the Malay word meaning something that rolls up.

Because of pangolin has been listing as genetically distinct and endangered mammals and Chinese people consider its meat as delicacy especially its scales was believed that it contains medicinal qualities, so pangolins are being threaten.
