How you can protect pangolins

Pangolins are the only mammals known to have plate-like scales; when threatened, they roll up into a ball, with the scales forming an armoured exterior. The scales are made of keratin (the same protein that makes up human hair and nails), which hardens as the pangolins reach maturity.
