Synopsis A pangolin is an obscure species of scaly anteater.
The anteater's snout might be different in shape but has the SAM 3 on's.
The name scaly anteater is applied to the pangolin; the banded anteater (Myrmecobius fasciatus) is a marsupial, and the spiny anteater (Echidna) is one of the monotremes (see Marsupialia and Monotremata).
They had six legs with little pads for feet instead of toes and claws, a delicate snout not quite the length of an anteater's lined with fine hairs and tiny teeth used to vacuum up mold, dust, and dirt that was its main food source, and an odd habit of climbing walls with hidden suckers in its padded feet.
Emas National Park in Brazil presents excellent wildlife viewing opportunities and remains a stronghold of the seldom seen maned wolf and giant anteater.
