what a beautiful and remarkably evolved creature. I'd love to see one in the wild. :)

I saw one in June 2000 on my first morning hike on the H2-2 road (Voortrekker road). We were watching something else when we spotted it. When the other animals ran off, it rolled up and the guide took us right up to the Pangolin. I have some nice video footage of it... Then I saw a youngster that had been caught in a snare, but that was outside the Park.

The doggies I have seen a few times on the S25 within 10km of the turn off from the tar road.

I am yet to see a pangolin. I have never seen one in the wild before.
