This study focusses on the Ground Pangolins (Smutsia temminckii) living in the arid Kalahari Desert of South Africa. Although limited previous studies have been done on Ground Pangolins, this is the first arid-environment study. Through this study we are trying to shed some light on the ecology and physiology of this enigmatic rare and threatened species, and formulate a conservation strategy for its continued existence.
