Christy - the suckling baby pangolin


Christy came into our care alongside Cheqs (a bigger female white bellied pangolin). These pangolins were rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. Cheqs is the shy one that took her time to warm up to her new environment during rehabilitation. Cheqs has all the characteristics of a nursing pangolin mother and we believe she is Christy’s mum as Christy is seen suckling from Cheqs in this video during their release into a protected forest area.
