Pangolins have survived for 85 million years, but their very existence is under threat now. Poachers are killing them for their scales. Dr. Ray Jansen, a zoology professor, and wildlife biologist Francois Meyer are trying to save South Africas pangolin population. They run sting operations in Musina to rescue these docile creatures, and then help them recover and return to their natural habitat. In this episode of Mission Wild, host Wes Larson goes deep into the bush to try and find a pangolin in the wild. But these solitary, nocturnal animals prove what masters of disguise they can be.
