Some ten days after Roux’s release, it was the turn of male pangolin, Romduel. Named after the fragrant frangipani, Romduel started his journey with Wildlife Alliance one year earlier. Unlike many of the pangolins who find their way to us, Romduol was donated to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre in March 2020. He was suspected to be a wild born Pangolin, increasing his chances in the wild – and his potential contribution to captive born Pangolin populations, including Roux!
With this in mind, Romduel was transferred from Phnom Tamao to the Wildlife Release Station in June of 2020. After some months at the Station, it was clear that Romduel wasn’t interested in any of our female pangolins. Therefore, he was prepared for release along with Roux.
Since his release, adventurous Rumduel has gone off radar a few times but we always find him in the end.
