Kakum National Park, Ghana
Long-tailed pangolin (Manis tetradactyla). This individual was in the canopy of a tall but narrow tree, then came down a creeper head-first using its prehensile tail. It then foraged around in leafy areas in the sub-canopy, periodically coming into view. Gradually it moved into different trees in the subcanopy using the interconnected vines. Observed mid-morning on a sunny day.
