Take a moment to appreciate natural defenses

found on Bloomberg

The natural world has some amazing defenses. Imagine how much we could learn from it if we stepped away from our day to day issues and really looked at the world.

Take the pangolin, for example. It's name refers to it's primary defense technique of rolling up into a ball, but it also has at least 2 other defenses - lashing out with it's tail, and emitting a foul smelling substance like a skunk (source).
