The pangolin is an interesting animal, and now endangered. They roll up into a pinecone-like ball which predators have a difficult time unrolling, so they're pretty calm in the wild, unafraid. This is sort of a bad thing for them, since it means humans can capture them.

People not only eat pangolins, they also use their scales as medicines (which don't work). They're being poached extensively.

Prints of this pangolin are available here.
