The long-tailed pangolin, African black-bellied pangolin, or ipi (Phataginus tetradactyla) is a diurnal, arboreal pangolin species that belongs to the family Manidae. They are native to parts of western and central Africa, including the Congo Basin and Guinean forests. Long-tailed pangolins feed on ants rather than termites. They have a characteristic very long tail, reaching a length around 60–70 cm. The body can reach a length of 30–40 cm and weigh 2.0–2.5 kg. The long-tailed pangolin is covered with 9 to 13 rows of overlapping, artichoke leaf-shaped keratinous scales. The scales are dark brown color with a brighter rim, which serves as camouflage.
