Day 20 - Pangolins

Article: Armoured but Vulnerable Pangolins


You’ve not seen a rare animal until you’ve seen a pangolin. It’s secretive, solitary and mainly nocturnal. But these characteristics are not the only reasons that pangolins are a rare sight. Pangolins are, unfortunately, the most trafficked animal in the world and threatened with extinction! Download the full article.

Activity: Make Your Own Ant Farm

Pangolins love to eat ants. We love to look at them. Observing an underground ant colony in the wild is not possible. That’s why we’ve made an ant farm. Now we can stare at them to our hearts’ content. 

What you need:

1. One large jar and one smaller container that fits inside the large jar.
2. Use soil that you find close to where you collect your ants.
3. Ants

Step 1

Make tiny holes in the lid for air.
Fix the smaller container in place.
This is so that the ants burrow near the glass.

Step 2

Fill your jar with soil.
Give your ants a drop of water and some breadcrumbs daily.

Step 3

Catch some ants.
