In the current study, we have camera trapped Indian pangolin in the country providing very 1st camera trap photographs of the species from Pakistan. The species has been camera trapped from two sampling sites; one from Pothwar Plateau (Kallar Syedan site 33.465N 73.409E district Rawalpindi) and from other sites named Rolli Hills (33.486N 73.902E), surrounding the University of Kotli, Azad Jammu & Kashmir. For this purpose, we installed camera traps eight camera trap stations from January 2021 till June 2021. We collected a total of 131 pictures of Indian pangolin from Kallar Syedan site and 25 pictures of the species from Rolli Hills site surrounding University of Kotli AJ&K. At Kallar Syedan site we confirmed two pangolins (one male and one female) while the female being pregnant and gave birth to baby pangolin (direct field observation) in the month of April.
