Pangolin trade The pangolin trade is the illegal poaching, trafficking, and sale of pangolins, parts of pangolins, or pangolin-derived products. Pangolins are believed to be the world's most trafficked mammal, accounting for as much as 20% of all illegal wildlife trade. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), more than a million pangolins were poached in the decade prior to 2014.

Chinese pangolin Though pangolins have been protected by legislation since the 1970s and 1980s, people still choose to hunt these endangered animals.

Just two weeks later, Hong Kong officials seized a second shipment that contained scales from about 5,000 pangolins.

Ground pangolin Although their outward appearance is reptilian, pangolins are mammals. Pangolins are almost completely covered in overlapping, protective scales, which makes up about 20% of their body weight. The scales are composed of keratin, the same material that forms human hair and fingernails, and give pangolins an appearance similar to a pinecone or artichoke. The underside of a pangolin is not covered with scales, but sparse fur, instead. When threatened, it usually rolls up into a ball, thus protecting its vulnerable belly.
Metacheiromys "Metacheiromys" and its relatives, including the enigmatic "Ernanodon", constitute the order Palaeanodonta, thought to be the sister taxon of pangolins.
