Temminck's Ground Pangolin

The most widespread and second-largest of the four African pangolin species, occurring from northern South Africa through most of East Africa and into southern Sudan and southern Chad.

Giant Ground Pangolin

The largest and rarest of the African pangolin species. It is a nocturnal, terrestrial species, inhabiting forests and forest-savanna mosaics in Central and West Africa, marginally entering East Africa as well.

Black-Bellied Pangolin

Perhaps the most beautiful species of pangolin, this species has large scales which are often a rich ochre colour with dark borders. The skin is black, contrasting with the ochre scales.

White-Bellied Pangolin

This small, arboreal species is fairly widespread and is also the species most frequently encountered, but they are by no means common. The body is covered in numerous small scales.

Not only are we donating 10% of our profits, we’ve also partnered with Born Free so you can adopt your very own pangolin.
