Pineapples and pangolins: They’re both sweet and share the same scaly dress. Surely, you enjoy pineapples while indulging in Uganda’s beauty. But have you tried our homemade pineapple jam? If not, now’s the time!
The pangolin story though is rather sad then sweet. All eight species, four of which call Uganda home, are among the world’s most trafficked mammals, and are near extinction. When protecting themselves from natural predators, they curl up in a ball inside their long tail – which contains up to 47 vertebrae, a world record among mammals! Our backbone has only 32 to 34.
The tragic truth is that we may lose pangolins before we even get to know them. We therefore dedicate our sweetness to the pangolins.
