How to draw a Pangolin tutorial
Let`s learn how to draw a Pangolin.
Pangolins are one of the rarest animals of the Earth. These animals belonging to the detachment of the placental mammals, they can be easily confused with armadillos. But despite the external similarity, these animals are completely different. In case of danger, pangolins curl up into a ball, so they are given the name “pengguling” — in Malay that means “to curl into a ball.”
The skin of the pangolin is covered with moveable scales, which are the protective armor. Pangolins are devoid of teeth, but they have huge claws, resembling the excavators as well as a long tongue and tail.
Pangolin drawing – lesson 1
Start with pencil sketch:
I drew a diagram of the bending of the limbs, but it’s more to do right. In fact, the scales on the pangolin bristle greately and we can only guess about the internal structure of this animal.
Pangolins move, relying on their huge claws.
The scales of the pangolin make him very similar to a spruce cone:
As for the muzzle of a pangolin,now look – I found a very nice picture. The head is very elongated,the eyes are large(but short-sighted),ears like a human. The facial expression is very gentle. But what powerful claws!
And here’s another step-by-step lesson how to draw a pangolin.

Pangolins feed on ants and termites – and they need their armor for protection not only from predators but also from insect bites. How to draw a termite we will study in the near future.
