One of the many special things about pangolins is there ability to roll up into a tight ball that even lions and tigers can’t get into. Unfortunately this defence makes it easy for humans to catch and smuggle them. Pangolins are the most trafficked animal in the world – illegally traded for their meat and scales.
I saw a cute paper pangolin like this online but couldn’t find a template to make it; this is my version.

There seems to be a real shortage of pangolin related crafts available online. So a few weeks ago (or maybe it was longer) I decided to make my own… My desk has been covered with pangolin-shaped bits of card, felt scales and prototype pangolins.
In the run-up to World Pangolin Day on 20 February 2016, I’ll post the results. Hope you have fun making your own pangolins! Please do share pictures of what you make via twitter or facebook.
