Rare pangolins rescued in Thailand

More than 100 endangered pangolins have been rescued by customs officials in Thailand, south-east Asia.

The unusual looking scaly creatures, which eat ants and termites, were found in boxes on the back of a car.

It's thought they were being smuggled in from neighbouring Malaysia.

The pangolins are recovering at a national park until they're ready to be taken back to the wild.
