Pangolins are sexually dimorphic, meaning the genders differ vastly in weight. Most male pangolins are up to 50 per cent heavier than females. The female give birth to a single pup, which travels on its mother’s back or tail and slips underneath her tummy when alarmed. The pangolin is a mind boggling, marvellous mammal and we feel very lucky to see this creature so often!
