Check out the Pangolin, man. Dude looks like an artichoke with legs. No offense Pangolin. Take a gander at the large, protective scales covering his skin. They are the only known mammals with this adaptation, which is cool as hell. They live in Africa in hollow trees or burrows, depending on the species. Pangolins are nocturnal, and their diet consists of mainly ants and termites which they capture using their long, specially adapted tongues. On a related note, a girl I dated in college named Heidi had one of those. Heidi was a popular chick. Pangolin tend to be solitary animals, meeting only to mate and produce a litter of one to three offspring which are raised for about two years. Oh, and it may not surprise you to learn that this guy is related to the Armadillo and even rolls up into a ball like one when threatened. I may try that move my own self, man. Anyhoo, Pangolin.
