While all of this was happening, the pangolin stayed curled up in a ball, which is what pangolins do when they’re scared. However, he may have also been sleepy, Taylor explained. Pangolins are nocturnal creatures, and shouldn’t be awake during the day.
On the drive to the WFFT rescue center, the pangolin bunkered down inside the cup holder of the man’s truck and stayed in there. When they arrived, the WFFT team had to gently coax him out.
