Meet Radin. As the first baby Sunda Pangolin – or “pangopup” – born to Wildlife Reserves Singapore since 2011, his birth was feted by zookeepers and conservationists alike.

For now though, he’s content to snuggle his mother, Nita, and hitch rides on her tail when she is foraging for ants and termites.
