Looking for a low maintenance pet for a little one that's hardy and won't break the bank in upkeep and care? A semi-aquatic pet might be just the answer. Not only are they fun and interesting, but they provide kids with opportunities to learn. Where are they from? What do they eat? Are they strong swimmers? How many colors do they come in and why are their bellies bright orange?

What is a Pangolin, you ask.  Well... it is this thing.  Sort of an anteater with Lord of the Rings body armor.  Pretty cool looking, eh?
