The pangora, a descendant of the nocturnal, insectivorous pangolins, are found in the woodlands of Southeast Asia. Due to climate change, the tropical rainforest will have hotter weather, fewer trees, and food shortages would deplete insect populations. Pangolins have many helpful adaptations such as having strong front claws to dig, thick tail for defense, covered in scales, curling up into a ball, and a sticky tongue.
The pangora would evolve by having a:
- long and flexible tail allowing them to climb trees to access more food, swim to cool off, and adapt to rising sea levels.
- longer snout and claws to access more food
- lighter color, absorbing less sunlight, being able to stay out, and camouflage
- padded underbelly and a lightweight body frame so they can travel faster and be protected
- better eyesight and longer claws will help it avoid predators and find resources quickly
