IChina’s iconic giant panda is struggling to survive; while its numbers appear to be higher than once suspected, there are still believed to be no more than 3,000 left in the wild. Despite strenuous efforts, they also don’t breed very well in captivity; they are also susceptible to poaching in the wild. The panda has been the symbol of the World Wildlife Fund since 1961.
Siberian Tiger Mother and Cub Wild tiger numbers are at an all-time low. The largest of all the Asian big cats may be on top of the food chain and one of the most culturally important and best-loved animals, but they are also vulnerable to extinction. There may be as few as 3,200 tigers left in the wild, and all are threatened by poaching and habitat loss.
A pangolin (also referred to as a scaly anteater or trenggiling) is a mammal of the order Pholidota. The one extant family, Manidae, has one genus, Manis, which comprises eight species. A pangolin has large keratin scales covering its skin, and is the only known mammal with this adaptation. It is found naturally in tropical regions throughout Africa and Asia. The name, pangolin, comes from the Malay word, pengguling, meaning "something that rolls up".
