Taxidermy Tree Pangolin

Log #5582

Latin: Manis tricuspis

Size: Approx. 10cm x 58cm x 17cm
Description: Victorian taxidermy specimen of a Tree Pangolin in complete, original condition. Also known as a White-bellied or Three-cusped Pangolin.

The Tree Pangolin can walk it's hind legs using its prehensile tail for balance. When swimming, it is known to fill it's stomach with air before entering water to aid in buoyancy.

Sadly, the Tree Pangolin is subject to widespread and often intensive exploitation for bushmeat and traditional medicine. Conservationists believe this species has undergone a decline of 20-25% over the past 15 years. They assert it continues to be harvested at unsustainable levels in some of its range and have recently elevated its status from "Least Concern" to "Near Threatened".

Ayre & Co does not source modern taxidermy specimens that have been killed for the purpose of taxidermy. Our modern taxidermy is mainly roadkill and catkill as these are sadly the top two threats to British wildlife. We also get animals that have died of old age, largely from zoos and falconers.

Antique pieces for us are another matter. Although some of these old specimens were hunted, we see no harm in trading them today.

Destroying them will not bring the animal back.

Taxidermy law can be complicated. We make it our business to know the laws surrounding the trade, keeping up to date with changes in current legislation so you can buy in confidence.
