What the hell sort of animal is this?
It’s a pokemon. Sandshrew, evolves into Sandslash.
Oh thank heaven.
Lmao it’s an Asian animal, no? Related to the armadillo.
It’s real? What malevolent deity claims it?
Malevolent? Heavens no. It’s cute in the way a hedgehog is cute. They’re similar in attitude to anteaters. They’re also like the most poached animal in the world I think.
But…why? I mean, I’ll grant you that I want to eat one, but why is it being poached? Is it delicious? Or is it for the usual stupid reasons of human fertility?
Illegal pets usually.
It’s ‘fancy shoes’ and ‘because I want to impress people at dinner’
Also eating. They’re one of the most popular “bush animals” to eat. But mostly the other parts, they can sustainably be killed for foodstuffs, not for foodstuffs AND clothestuffs by people who don’t also make them into foodstuffs.
They are so super cute
