Which Real Animal Seems the Most Like a Fantasy Creature?

If you had asked me this question last week, I may have answered manatee, platypus, or the harpy eagle.

But then I learned about the pangolin.

This is a very real animal called the pangolin, which is found in parts of Africa and Asia. Despite the reptilian scales, it’s a mammal. This photo makes it look much larger than it actually is, though the biggest pangolins can top the scales at around 70 lbs.

Have you met a pangolin? Which real animal seems the most like a fantasy creature to you?
