After Leaving All Of Her Problems Bbehind Pangolin Takes A Mud Bath

This is Ditsi, a cute tiny pangolin that was rescued from poachers’ grasps in South Africa last year.

Ditsi has a strong soft place for one item in particular, despite her hard exterior of inflexible scales making it difficult to tell from the outside.

Mud baths are Ditsi’s favorite.

After being saved from the illegal wildlife trade as a young pangolin pup, Detsi was nursed back to health by rescuers at the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital.

From there, when she’d finally gained her strength, she was transferred to the Manyoni Private Game Reserve for a “soft release” back into the wild.

Since then, the Zululand Conservation Trust has constantly followed Ditsi’s recovery to make sure she would eventually be able to flourish on her own. But along the road, her guardians learned another thing about her: She really likes getting her hands filthy.

Check out this clip of Ditsi in action:

Ditsi is obviously enjoying life despite her rough history, and maybe her future will be happy.

Unfortunately, not all pangolins have had such good fortune.

Ditsi’s species is among the most trafficked mammals on the planet. Every year, as many as 2.7 million pangolins are taken from the wild to be sold as part of the illegal wildlife trade.

Ditsi was one of the lucky ones to have been saved, but countless others await.
