Pangolin are originally from Asia and Africa, and they are the most trafficked mammals in the world according to the IUCN. All ten species of pangolin are classified as critically threatened. The name pangolin comes from the Malay word pengguling, meaning "one who rolls up". Pangolins are endangered by heavy deforestation of their natural habitats and by poaching for their meat and scales. Though pangolins are protected by international laws, in both continents local healers continue to use the animal as a source of traditional medicine.
