Tuesday Trailcam Takes – Pangolin on my trailcam!!!

I usually can’t help myself when I go and check my camera. I know it eats battery, but I check the little LCD screen to see if I captured anything interesting. This past weekend I did the same. My camera was at the same spot for almost 2 weeks without me checking it. I scrolled through and saw something that sparked my interest. ‘It can’t be.” I thought, so I checked it again. It is an African Pangolin. An animal that I have never personally seen in my life.

I think I must have watched that little video clip over a hundred times already. I went in the hole, disappeared for a minute or two and then came back out, the camera only caught it’s tail on the way out and you can hear it rustling the leaves as it walked away.

I am so thankful that even though this is one of the most poached animals in the world, my camera could capture one. I hope to see it in real life one day…. And may this one stay safe.

Enjoy this little clip as posted on my Facebook Page.

      Dit is nê. Ek wonder hoekom veldkamera hul so min afneem. Is hulle so skaars, of is daar ‘n ander rede?

        Hulle is beslis so skaars, en word by die dag skaarser…

        Dis hartseer. Ek hoop dat daar ‘n draai kom in die stroping van hulle.

        Ons ook. Hartseer realiteit is dat daar meer as n biljoen mense is wie se bygelowe eers uitgevee sal moet word voor die stroping gaan eindig…
