Pangolins are being trafficked into extinction as a record haul of 26 tons of scales worth $77 million is seized in Singapore
Singapore has seized its biggest-ever haul (26 tons) of pangolin scales
•This is another sign that the animal is being hunted to the brink of extinction
•Officials found the scales hidden among packets of frozen beef last Wednesday
•It was estimated that on average 20 tons of scales were being smuggled each year but that figure is thought to have doubled






Singapore has seized a record haul of pangolin scales worth $77 million, an indication that the shy, nocturnal anteater is on the brink of extinction.

The pangolin, also known as the scaly anteater, is said to be the most widely trafficked mammal in the world.

More than 26 tons (23 tonnes) of pangolin scales belonging to around 38,000 of the endangered mammals have been seized over the past week.

The scales, which were found in shipping containers, have been linked to four species of pangolins native to Africa.


Pangolin scales are made of keratin, the same material in human fingernails.

Its scales are in high demand in Asia for use in traditional Chinese medicine and their meat is also considered a delicacy in China and other Asian countries.

Good thread to raise consciousness!

They are the most innocuous of animals and are being hunted to extinction by man for their meat.

You can contribute for their survival.

and scales... just like shark finning. that pisses me off. I have done shark feed dives and see sharks almost every time I dive, They get a bad rap and definitely don't need fins cut and just dumped in ocean!!!
