I believe I used a 70-300 zoom. The pangolin was curled in a ball for the first one and it's at 160mm, so quite close up. Second is at 300mm when it came out of the ball, and decided to make a run for the trees.

I replaced the original ones I posted with more recent versions with better colour. I found a third while I was in that hard drive.

A pangolin puts in a guest appearance in this ZDF film about our human-predator conflict study in the Caprivi strip. If you just want to see the pangolin, start viewing around 18'20".

Commentary is in German. The film deals mainly with the presenter's experience of the area but gives a little idea of the daily routine of the scientific study (gps mapping, interviews with farmers, recording of kraals, searching for predators and wild prey).
What pays stays.

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

I really, really want to see one.

I like that second shot Wild Dogger, the light glancing off the scales is very attractive.

Jealous, me? :)

I'm filled with nothing but happiness for my fellow safaritalker :o

Actually, me spotting a pangolin after all these years would probably end up being quite anticlimactic....

Who's seen a Pangolin recently then? (And no, I'm not asking Mrs Pangolin...)
