And now, a pangolin cavorting in the mud

Did you all know yesterday was World Pangolin Day? Somehow we overlooked it, and we're kind of ashamed about that. Because look at this thing. It's an armor-plated mammal, for crying out loud. To make up for the oversight, here's a video of a pangolin wallowing merrily in a pool of mud.

These videos come by way of Earth Touch and feature footage captured in Namibia, Africa by the Rare and Endangered Species Trust. Read more about these surprisingly cute creatures here.

Are they related to armadillos? Or is this a case of convergent intelligent design?
