I remember seeing a stuffed pangolin in Japan or Hong Kong airport.  It was a reminder that these species are near extinction and therefore should not be traded or smuggled into another country.

Due to high demands for their scales and meat, pangolins have become the most trafficked mammal in the world. The declining population of pangolins is increasing their commercial value in the black market, resulting in a vicious cycle that increases the demand for these scaled creatures.

There are 8 species of pangolin in the world with 4 of them in found in Asia. At the present rate, we would be seeing less species if poaching does not stop.
