So far in our release program we have seen our pangolins climb up tree trunks and sleep tucked inside tree hollows. However, this morning we found P27 curled up at the base of the tree, after apparently trying to dig a burrow.
Other species of pangolin are known to dig their own den sites, but Sunda Pangolins are thought of as more arboreal and this certainly matches what we have seen so far. He seemed completely unaware of us being there and remained curled up fast asleep; you can see how easy it would be for a hunter to grab him.
With each release we learn something more about the behaviour of these animals and although they may only be small things we observe, it all helps build on our ecological knowledge of this species.
