#Pangolin is a widely trafficked animal. Meat is considered delicacy.. also due to sum alleged medicinal values. Scales are used in traditional oriental medicines as an aphrodisiac and to cure asthma, psoriasis, cancer. Bile nd claws r reportedly used by svlr tribal communities.
Pangolins are smoked or dug out of their burrows and dipped into boiling water to extract the scales. Poachers who are contacted by traffickers lure local tribals to locate the animal and at times even trap it. Hunting or trade in pangolins in #India is a criminal offence .

After 2 years of our unremitting efforts, "Pangolin" has been removed from the latest edition of Chinese Pharmacopoeia today. Which means that #pangolin is no longer legal to serve as a TCM ingredient. Although many people' attack me on this, history has proved that I‘m right

This is a #Pangolin, the most trafficked mammal on planet. Found across India naturally & un-harmful but millions are hunted & trafficked across Asia & Africa. All eight species of them are under threat for their use in medicines. There is no proof that they spread #Covid19.
They are Ant eaters & important part of ecosystem. Indian pangolin is found across India & now endangered. Everywhere they are on their last leg. Scales are used in traditional medicines mistakenly for ailments & reducing impotency. Huge market in China & SE Asia. Both AP images.
Last year Singapore seized 8.8 tonnes of #elephant #ivory & 11.9 tonnes of #pangolin scales in 3 containers en route from DR Congo to Vietnam. For which 33,000 pangloin were killed. This is only one such seizure. There is huge market & harmless creature hunted to the extinction.
