#endangeredanimal

I still love this photo! This was from almost a year ago when I took my daughter to a behind-the-scenes tour of the giraffes at the Oregon Zoo. The Oregon Zoo does a great job with their educational programs as well as their worldwide conservation efforts. It’s easy to be against the idea of zoos, but the reality is, many of them are doing important work towards learning about and saving species that are threatened, as well as inspiring he next generation to be better caretakers of the earth than we have been.

Okay this overpriced $8k Triumph Tiger Cub 200cc finally gets the carburetor it deserved. The worn out 15/16” Monoblock was what it came with!
What the heck why didn’t Baxter’s prepare it and finish it with a brand new carb? Charlie’s happy now. Starts easily doesn’t drool gas in the garage anymore. Runs well too. #triumphtigercub #tiger#oldbritishbike #instagamer #internetdreams #endangeredanimal #nycmotorcycleart #amalconcentric

It’s not shown on TV, but every day, millions of sharks are killed for their fins. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We sat down with renowned shark conservationist Dr Austin Gallagher to dive into the dark side of a shark’s life, a story hidden deep beneath the waves.

Sunda Pangolins are frequently found with 'white' scales on their tails, the reason for this characteristic is not (yet!) known.

To celebrate #WorldPangolinDay here are our ‘Top Ten Pangolin Facts:’⁣

1. There are 8 species of pangolin, 4 in Africa and 4 in Asia. ⁣

2. Though solitary animals, pangolins spend an average of 2 years with their babies.⁣

3. Each pangolin has over 1,000 keratin scales that can make up to 20% of their body weight.⁣

4. The word ‘pangolin’ comes from the Malay word ‘penggulung’, which means ‘one that rolls up.’ Care to take a stab at what they do when they feel threatened? ⁣

5. Instead of being attached at the top of the throat (like ours), pangolin tongues attach deep in their chest, close to their last rib. This allows them to pull their insect dinner straight down to their bellies without chewing.⁣

6. Black bellied pangolins have more bones in their tails than any other animal with a total of 46 vertebrae.⁣

7. Pangolins can eat anywhere between 30,000 and 200,000 ants/termites a DAY!⁣

8. The largest pangolin is the giant pangolin, which can weigh up to 75 lbs. Meanwhile, the smallest pangolins are the black bellied pangolins, which weigh up to 5.5 lbs. Huge difference!⁣

9. All of the Asian pangolin species are endangered or critically endangered, and all African pangolins are considered vulnerable, though many conservationists believe that they are also endangered or critically endangered. ⁣

10. Pangolins are the world’s most trafficked animal. ⁣

In light all of the tragic recent pangolin events, we really wanted to write an upbeat post that could celebrate this wonderful animal. These scaly anteaters can use all the help they can get. Please consider sharing about them today!⁣

Happy World Pangolin Day everyone!!⁣

NO TO CHINA! Leave them alone. Their scales do NOT have medicinal powers. They are going extinct! Is that what it needs before you realise rhinohorn, tigerbones, bearclaws what have you, DO NOT WORK AS 'MEDICINES'???? Get a grip! Grow up!!!

World Pangolin Day is tomorrow‼️ You have an opportunity to help save this incredibly endangered creature. ⁣

Here are 3 things you can do that will REALLY help the pangolin: ⁣

1. Share this post on social media.⁣

2. Share about pangolins on February 16th (tomorrow).⁣

3. Select your favorite talk show, influencer, podcast, radio show, celebrity, or politician and write them an email about the importance of sharing about pangolins (maybe note that authorities across the globe have seized over 40 tons of pangolin in the last 2.5 weeks alone). If you need some extra info, you can find a lot in my recent posts (@pangolinandco).⁣

Bonus: You have that influential person, show or group in mind? Tag them in the comments below!⁣

If you did any of these things, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!⁣

Today is #worldpangolinday. In case you didn't know, #pangolins are awesome & my favourite animal, so I thought I'd share some of my #pangolin collection & provide some info to help raise #awareness.
.
.
Pangolins are the only mammals in the world to be covered in protective scales. These scales are made of keratin, the same material found in human fingernails. They are great protection against predators but sadly not against poachers.

Pangolins eat ants & termites which they pick up with their long sticky tongues

There are eight species of pangolin. Four species in Africa & four in Asia
The biggest species is the giant pangolin, found in Africa, measuring up to 1.8m long and weighing up to 75lbs.

The pangolin is the most widely #trafficked mammal in the world. Over the past decade over a million have been illegally taken from the wild.
Its scales are in high demand in Asia for use in traditional Chinese medicine, despite there being no medical benefit for their use! While its meat is considered a delicacy in some countries. All eight pangolin species are protected under national and international laws, and two are listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Hello Saturday! It has been a busy week, but I am happy to say the past event has been a special experience!
Since giving this rhino a new home, I have been receiving positive feedback, though this endangered Black Rhino one still lacks a home. It will be coming with me to my next show at #ooak19 along with other species in glass domes!
I consider these as my small side projects, because they get into model making, and require a whole new set of skills and tools that I do not typically use.

Diceros bicornis - Black Rhinoceros
IUCN Status: Critically Endangered
Over half of the subspecies has been declared extinct, and the remaining are all on the Critically Endangered list on the IUCN.

@skinnyhenry for photo cred :)
Edit: oh yeah, that’s me...haven’t really officially post a picture of myself on IG 😅
Today is World Pangolin Day. Over a million of these little guys have been poached in the last decade and scientists have no idea how many are actually left in the wild. They need our help.

🐘❤️y’all, i had THE BEST VALENTINE’S DAY EVER! we got to go to an elephant preserve in fredericksburg, and it is such a magical place. they have 5 beautiful female asian elephants there, ages 34-56 (they live to be over 70!). the people there take great care of these endangered animals - there are less than 35k of them left in the whole world. 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘❤️
we spent 2 hours with these gentle giants, got to give them a bath, a pedicure, hugs & kisses, watch their trainers work w them on all kinds of complex tasks & tricks to stay fit & mentally stimulated.. they even paint! it was incredible.
if you’re an animal lover, you should definitely visit the preserve & support this organization so they can continue to do the good work of taking care of these elephants!

Giant pangolin footage.
World Pangolin Day!
#Repost @libassa_wildlife_sanctuary

#Repost from @pangolinandco with @regram.app ... Great news! This footage of a giant pangolin was captured on a hidden camera by conservationists from the Chester Zoo. ⁣

For awhile I had an ongoing joke with an Africa-based conservationist that giant pangolins didn’t really exist. What I meant by that was they are INCREDIBLY rare. In an effort to supply this page with good content I have dug deep into the internet in hopes of finding quality pictures of the giant pangolin. There is nothing save a few grainy shots. If it’s a nice picture and says “giant pangolin,” it is almost certainly a Cape pangolin (even NatGeo was guilty of doing this). Hence, “they don’t exist.” Meanwhile, since of 2013 the IUCN has listed this species as “vulnerable.” I concede that this is a shy animal, but do you really think that no photographers can snap a good shot of a creature that can be 75 lbs., walks super slowly, and is just vulnerable? I don’t buy it. I think that it would be safer to say that this is a critically endangered species.⁣

All that to say, this study is a big deal. It represents the first real study of the giant pangolin in Uganda and I have high hopes that it will shed some much needed light on how endangered this species really is, and maybe give some insight on how we can save them. ⁣

Another cool fact? Some of this footage was used by the BBC and it has ranked as one of their top watched clips for the last two days. ⁣

Keep up the great work Chester Zoo!⁣

World Pangolin Day is this Saturday. Please take that as an opportunity to raise awareness of this creature that is quickly moving toward extinction. ⁣

While searching for your valentine, keep in mind some animals have a hard time finding theirs!
.
Many species from Central America, like Abronia, are from habitats that are becoming increasingly fragmented due to deforestation and agricultural expansion. As a result, many species are experiencing a general population decline.

#Faebruary Day 4: Ploughshare Tortoise (Critically Endangered)
.
Endemic, or native, to Madagascar, this species is one of the rarest land tortoises in the world. Its upper shell, carapace, is hard and highly domed with prominent concentric growth rings on each scute, which is one of the large scales on the upper shell.
.
Males compete for access to females through wrestling matches. In the match, the male tries to flip its opponent over using the plough-like projection of the lower shell below its neck. During a breeding season, females will lay up to seven clutches with 2-6 eggs. The young tortoises are about the size of a ping pong ball when they hatch. After hatching, they are completely independent with the mother abandoning them after laying the eggs.
.
It is estimated that there are about 200 ploughshare tortoises in the wild according to IUCN. One major and current threat comes from illegal collection for international pet trade. The species is in extremely high demand in the global illegal pet trade. 🐢

I did some light research on the native people of Madagascar, Malagasy and there were photos of women with face paint, which seems like a local custom. So I thought it would be cool to add some face paint on this fairy. 😄

It has been a rough few weeks for pangolins. In the long list of atrocities, on the 12th 32.8 tons of pangolin were discovered in Malaysia. 32.8 tons. That is the biggest wildlife bust in Malaysia’s history. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The number is unimaginable. Usually in the massive pangolin busts (isn’t it just awful that there is a “usually?”) the pangolins are sourced from Africa. I have read several articles on this event and I have found no reference to where the pangolins came from. That said, I don’t think that the majority came from Africa for two reasons: The first is that along with 1,800 boxes of pangolin parts, 572 additional frozen pangolins and 795 pounds of scales, they found 61 live pangolins. It is fairly unheard of that a live pangolin makes it to Asia from Africa. The second reason is that in the photos that have been released from the crime scene the frozen pangolins look an awful lot like Sunda pangolins, native to Southeast Asia (a healthy one is depicted in the first image). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Regardless, of the species, this is tragic. That said, if these are indeed Sunda pangolins, we are witnessing a huge hit to a critically endangered species. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
World Pangolin Day is this Saturday. Please take that as an opportunity to raise awareness of this creature that is quickly moving toward extinction. ⁣⁣

I’m seeing stripes 😍 I’m loving seeing all the free pieces I’ve sent out in their new homes (keep ‘em coming!), but I especially love this beautiful creature that’s endangered. Okapi are the giraffe’s closest living relative and just so. dang. cute.
Are you ready for world Pangolin Day?⁣

Pangolin populations are quickly decreasing. Currently two of the eight species are recognized as critically endangered; the Sunda pangolin (photo 1), and the Chinese pangolin (photo 2). It is often difficult to tell these two species apart, especially since they share some of the same geographic territory in South East Asia. That said, the easiest way to tell these two apart is that Chinese pangolins tend to have thicker tails. The more you know, right? ⁣

We are counting down the days until February 16th, World Pangolin Day, where conservation groups across the globe will be making a push to raise awareness about these cool creatures. We would be grateful if you consider joining us by posting about pangolins as well! ⁣

The critically endangered Red Wolf.

Red wolves have been historically threatened by human trapping/predator control. As well, habitat loss has played a factor in their population loss that led to near extinction. The species had already reduced in range by the time scientific
assessment began. Hybridization (of red wolves with coyotes or red wolf-coyote
hybrids) has also proved a great threat in wild populations.

A piece from my AP Drawing portfolio, “Endangered Animals”, 2018.

Hawksbill turtle adding to his look. 😀 Liking drawing his patterned self. Lol I sounded hippyish.

Is this some kind of mythical beast? ⁣

It certainly looks like one! Rather, it is one of the most majestic photos of white-bellied pangolin, aka the tree pangolin that I have ever seen. ⁣

World Pangolin Day is coming up February 16th! If you want to help this endangered species out just check out our last post! ⁣

National Geographic rolled out a 'missing cat' poster which highlights the plight of big cats and will eventually disappear as pedestrians walk across it.
