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.
