The pangolin comes to town.

In Dhaka. The BBC reports:
The anteater is renowned for its razor-sharp scales, and has scent glands similar to those of the skunk which it uses to spray enemies.
Sounds awful, but click the link for a picture. It's really cool looking!

Very cute, but will they guard little lost orphans until responsible adults show up to claim them??

goesh: maybe if the orphans were covered in ants, they would get a little love there...

Ann: I know it's real, but that thing looks like a Photoshopped anteater! "Pimp my Anteater", the new reality show!
