Sadly, these delightful creatures are heavily under threat from poaching, and are the most trafficked mammals in the world. Deux petites, mais charmantes, gravures d'un pangolin, ou fourmilier écailleux. L'une vue de l'arrière (ou du dessus), l'autre en boule. Toutes deux sur la même feuille de papier crème épais de haute qualité. Impressions profondes sur chacune d'entre elles. Elles semblent avoir été pressées à la main. Parfaites pour l'encadrement. Taille des images : 60 x 100 mm et 60 x 40 mm respectivement. Taille totale de la feuille : 275 x 145 mm (10¾ x 5¾ inches). Les pangolins sont des mammifères dont la peau est recouverte de grandes écailles de kératine protectrices. De nature nocturne, ils se nourrissent principalement de fourmis et de termites, qu'ils capturent à l'aide de leur très longue langue. Malheureusement, ces charmantes créatures sont fortement menacées par le braconnage et sont les mammifères les plus trafiqués au monde.
