Pangolins Know Place Values

Pangolins Know Place Values


Why do Pangolins know place values so well? Well, they are the only mammal in the world to be covered from head to toe in keratin scales (the same as human fingernails). All of these scales are placed just so, so they have a notebook to keep track of which ones are where. They happen to be very good at number place values, too.
