Planet Zoo - How to Care and Manage Stressed Chinese Pangolin

How to Care



Before adopting a Chinese Pangolin, and placing one within your zoo, make sure to prepare. When preparing, first think of how much space they may need, of course. And, always use one-way glass, or concrete barriers with a window of one-way glass, so the guests can view, and so the Chinese Pangolin is comfortable as they cannot view through where the guests are looking. A Chinese Pangolin's main continent is (Asia).

Once your barriers are done, now think about scenery. Go to your nature tab, and go to filters. Chinese Pangolin's live in (Asia), along with living in (Temperate) habitats. Make sure to go to your filter tab in the nature selection, and press on (Temperate, and Asia) so the correct filtered plants, trees and flowers will come to sight for the correct habitat.

Before you place your trees, flowers, rocks, (ectentra), though, make sure you have the correct sized habitat. I would recommend having a habitat larger than 182m(2), because, as Chinese Pangolin's due reproduce quite a bit, they will need extra room for their little one's!

Make sure to have a medium-sized watering hole. Not too deep, and not too shallow. And, to maintain the waters health, make sure to have a Water Station nearby, and close enough to the water, so the animals don't get sick from dirty water. (Chinese Pangolin's do not require climbing materials.

Make sure to have a few hard shelters for these animals. Or heck, even make your own! It would look more natural, as well. Once that is done, go to your Habitat Tab, and then type in Pangolin, and all of the necessary materials will pop up for what this animal will require and need.

How to Manage



You may be thinking, when you set your (Chinese Pangolin), their scientific name being Manis Pentadactyla, within your zoo, how the heck do I manage their wellbeing, wellfair, even? That's a good question. When I first started my Zoo in Planet Zoo, my very first animal that I put within my own habitat, was the Chinese Pangolin. Overtime as guests flooded in like an utter tsunami, my animals became scared, and a note on the Chinese Pangolin's tab said, "Stressed and is trying to hide". I was completely confused. But, then I looked at their wellfair, and saw that it was beyond low. And, as I also took a second peek at their zoopedia information, it said that Chinese Pangolins are "shy". When that came to mind, I took a look in my inventory of zoo items, and looked at the animal barriers. Chinese Pangolin's don't necessarily like to be viewed, as it is a very stressful thing to them, like a predator stalking their prey.

At first, I thought it was an enrichment problem, and so I added more toys, more food enrichments, but, nothing worked, including the extra amount of trees. Nope. What worked, then? The right barriers, did!

When you have a Chinese Pangolin in your zoo, have either concrete barriers with one-way windows, where the animal can't see through the walls where people are viewing on the other side, or either regular one-way glass.
