Two rare pangolins rescued in the central province of Quang Nam have given birth to two offspring.

Le Thuy Trinh, Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment, said that they were rescued in August 2022 and December 2023. They had been injured after being trapped and sent to the Vinpearl River Safari Nam Hoi An Animal Rescue Centre.



The two baby pangolins

Baby pangolins are carefully nurtured with special nutritional regimes and closely monitored to ensure healthy development.

The centre will consider releasing the four pangolins into the wild when they are in sufficiently good health.

The Javan pangolin is listed among endangered and rare species and is facing the threat of extinction. They are usually hunted for their shells and meat.

The gestation period for pangolins from conception to birth, is roughly 150-160 days.
