Description

St. Mark, a vet doctor and conservationist, is able to rescue only 3 out of 8 pangolins being offered for sale this morning alone at the Epe fish market in Lagos.

Out of the 8 pangolins, 1 came in dead, eviscerated from GSW. About 2 injured. 2 juveniles. Rest are adults.

St. Mark rescues a juvenile and 2 injured for rehabilitation at his vet, to give the endangered species a second chance at life. He does this often, and often times is compelled to exchange money for the release of the poor kitchen-bound pangolins.

The first 2 photos are the last set of pangolins supplied at the market before our departure. The 3rd photo is that of the unassuming juvenile exploring St. Mark's head and shoulders.

This visit was made possible by WildAid presently filming (for a documentary) the efforts of wildlife activists in Nigeria, like the charitable vet doctor and several others.

Keyed to 'Bufo urunguensis' in Chaning's Amphibians of Central and Southern Africa (one day I will have the more recent pan-African book); puzzled me that this is held in Sclerophrys but given that in his key it clusters with Poyntonophrynus, and there is some suggestion that it should be moved to that genus on Amphibiaweb etc., I am a little more comfortable with this as an I.D., but would appreciate confirmation.
