Pangolins are small creatures found in tropical plains and forests. They spawn one at a time and wander through the map, eating bugs along the way. They are only as big as a cat and will run away if threatened, making them harmless to your dwarf civilians and an easy target for your hunters.
Pangolins can be captured in cage traps and trained into low-value pets. If a breeding pair is obtained, they can be bred either to populate the fort with more pangolins or to be butchered for meat, though their small size means they create few products. Additionally, pangolins are distinct for being covered in scales rather than normal hide, which makes them useless for creating leather.
Some dwarves like pangolins for their overlapping scales.

Despite popular belief, pangolins will not cause a long-lasting outbreak of any type of disease; therefore workshops do not need to be quarantined or outright abandoned. Nor do face masks (aside from armor) need to be made.
