Abstract

An adult female Temminck's pangolin (Smutsia temminckii) confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade presented with an ulcerated lesion of the right forelimb. Neurologic signs and tonic spasms characteristic of tetanus developed after 5 d. Despite supportive treatment, the pangolin died. Tetanus has not previously been reported in any pangolin species.
