White-bellied Pangolin
A baby white-bellied pangolin (Phataginus tricuspis) clings to her mother's back at a facility in Florida. At just 70 days old, this captive-born baby was a first in captivity! This species, like many other pangolin species, is illegally taken from the wild. Unfortunately, it is falsely believed that the protective keratin scales have curative properties.

صغير آكل النمل الحرشفي ذو البطن الأبيض متعلّق بظهر أمّه في منشأة في فلوريدا. لا يتخطّى عمر هذا الصغير 70 يوماً، ويُعتبر الحيوان الأوّل من نوعه الذي يولد في الاحتجاز! ويتمّ أخذ هذه الحيوانات، مثل العديد من فصائل آكلي النمل الأخرى، من موطنها الأصلي في البرية بطريقة غير قانونيّة، إذ يسري اعتقادٌ خاطئ بأنّ حراشفها الغنيّة بالكيراتين تتمتّع بخصائص علاجيّة.
