  1. Get it together Nigeria

  2. Is pangolin even good, it looks like an armadillo to me and only real rednecks eat those. They carry leprosy and people still eat them, so who knows.

  3. Why would anyone want to eat them anyway? How can you look at the animal version of an armoured car and think “fuck yeah, that’s some good eatin” for fuck sake.

  4. Nigerian here, I have never seen a pagolin except in pictures. As far as I know it’s the Chinese restaurants in Nigeria that serve such exotic meat.

  5. No wonder they are scared of Covid-19 and follow Trump’s recipe to cure it!

  6. is that where coronavirus came from? pangolins?

  7. **”Nigeria has taken no action to stop its pangolin trade”**

    despite COVID-19.. what the hell do these two things have to do with each other?

  8. atleast in china wild game like bats and pangolins are only enjoyed by a very low percentage of the people as a form of delicacy. in many areas in the amazon or in africa, there are people whose entire daily protein intake comes from these animals.
