Now, three Sunda pangolins (also known as Malayan pangolin) “always sleep”, “not move”, and “last night” is alive after care treatment. The biggest one, “last night”, is male; “not move” and “always sleep” are female. The Pangolin Working Group of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) has bought various fodders from multiple platforms to meet their needs.
Anthills purchased online and collected by CBCGDF volunteers are mixed with little branches, leaves, dust, grits, and plastic bags.
It took four volunteers over four hours to pick up ants from the waste on May 3. The edible ants of which the gross weight is less than 100 grams are far from enough for three poor pangolins.
