Busts in Asia reveal scales from 38,000 endangered pangolins

In this April 9, 2019, photo released by the National Parks Board, some of the 12 tons of pangolin scales worth around US$38.1 million are displayed in an undisclosed site in Singapore. Singapore has seized more than 25 tons of pangolin scales belonging to tens of thousands of the endangered mammals in two busts over the past week, a global record for such seizures.
