A Pangolin!! wonderful creatures, also called the scaled anteater. These guys are specialist feeders usually found on the ground. Fantastic capture!

Well captured Pangolin, Manis crassicaudata. It is an endangered animal -scaly ant eater - Raja.

Good capture. From the above comments I too have gained some information ... otherwise ... although I had seen one such species earlier, I was not knowing its exact name. I simply knew it as "ant eater".

It's a very nice shot of a "Pangolin" or "Scaly Anteater"
