I totally understand and delighted that you got to see the Pangolin. It’s on my bucket list too! The only one I got to see in the bush was a sterling silver one! Which made me want to see the scarce creature even more! Share all sights and yes go Pangolin Speed!

Oh James, jealousy makes one nasty!!!! Well you are now one up on me, I have never seen one, except the pics that you. Mike & my son have shown, so for now that makes me happy, so thanks for the lovely write-up & picture.
PS It is alive I hope?

Had it dug itself into a hole? Is that why you only got a shot of the tail?

Hi Evette,

It had it’s head in a bush, so only a tail shot unfortunately. It moved off shortly afterwards but the light had gone so had put the camera away…

That is pretty incredible, was the other one seen in a similar area? Do you think it is the same animal?

Very jealous!!

James, it was the highlight of our trip. I believe you called the Pangolin the “holy grail” (located on page 209 of your book.) Your commentary every couple of minutes that it was just over the hill, or just around the corner made everything more exciting. We found the search for the elusive Pangolin just as thrilling.

We had such a great time and you and Mike were fantastic hosts. We can’t wait to come back, even if it’s just to experience Pangolin speed.
