"The right to buy weapons is the right to be free." -A.E. van Vogt
I always thought they were cute, but I cannot imagine having a domesticated one. You can't pet it, it won't exactly jump up and give you kisses when you get home from work, and the claws can tear through anything- it would be worse than trying to keep a goat. No doubt some old creep somewhere wants to smoke it's scales or something as a cure for inconvenient limpness.
Don't tell me you expected something different...
Og, I suspect those pangolins were destined to the local Chinese Apothecary, rather than a pet shop....
Pangolins are awesome. Truly fascinating evolutionary organisms. They essentially fill the role true anteaters (from South America) do, only they do it in Africa, India, and southeast Asia. -Rob
That'll be some drooling maniac in China (or possibly Taiwan) ordering them; in their eyes the rarer, more exotic and more expensive the animal, the better.
PO-PO: Why do you have 49 pangolins in your ambulance?Perp: Personal use, but I can quit anytime.Gerry
The armadillo from Jeff Goldstein's Proteinwisdom.com blog is probably hiding under a sofa in fear of kidnapping right now.
I could have done without the sidebar picture of the .5kg Hairball from some 12 year old girl's stomach, thankyouverymuch.
