I apparently has a gentle nature and is virtually impossible to catch sight of in the wild.  I suspect someone didn't quite get the uni-corn thing when they came up with the name.

I'm afraid the animal's rather small incisors are no match for all that wood and metal here. I suggest scaring it off to yet another section of the forum.  8)
P.S.: On the other hand, since it has a browsing diet, it should be free to browse whatever forum section it likes, no?  ;D

It's one of the worlds most critically endangered species.   For an animal this size, that's usually a sign they're yummy.

You rot in hell for testing that theory, of course.

No wonder he looks nervous. If you "poll" a unicorn, it's nothing special.

I thought it would be interesting to release a rare Asian unicorn in the forum.   (As opposed to the common, everyday Asian unicorn.)

Unfortunately, only near-rhyme words are possible.

P.S.: Do you remember the "Elephant song" by Kamahl?

The pangolin fits into the melody:

Tell me said the pangolin
Tell me brothers if you can
Why all the world is full of creatures
Yet we grow in fear of man... etc. ;D

"You are old Papa Pangolin," the young man said, "and your hair is exceedingly white
and yet you incessantly stand on your head--
at your age do you think this is right?"

"In my youth" said the Pangolin beast to his son  ;D
"I feared it might injure the brain,
but now that I'am perfectly sure I have none why I do it again and again...
