Mother and Baby Pangolin Mamma Pangolin's carry their babies on their backs and take good care of their young. Hunted for food and for their scales, I am wondering now if their scales are ending up in my shampoo as keratin? No more Keratin shampoo!

I love bats.  They sleep out of the way in deep dark damp caves, they give us amazing fertilizer, they pollinate millions of plants, eat billions of bugs, and because they know folks think them scary, they are polite enough to do it all on the night shift, silently.  Then they sleep upside down, and see by radar just to prove that there is more than one good way to do something.  We all would literally be in a world of hurt and disease without bats.

Stunning photograph of a Flying fox! Endangered - many critically. They are threatened by hunting and habitat destruction. Think before you harm this beautiful creature.

A pangolin also referred to as a scaly anteater or trenggiling is a mammal of the order Pholidota. The one extant family, Manidae, has one genus, Manis, which comprises eight species. A number of extinct species are known. A pangolin has large keratin scales covering its skin, and is the only known mammal with this adaptation.
