Think skunk in armor

The pangolin, or scaly anteater, got its name from a Malay word that means “something that rolls up.” In fact, pangolins do roll up into a scaly ball when scared. They also can emit a noxious smelling acid. I’d love to see one roll up, but only if it was just a little bit scared so it was odorfree!

Pangolins are native to Africa and Asia.
