These are apex predators of the oceans. A shark’s scales are actually dermal denticles which are more similar to teeth rather than fish scales. They are their secret weapons to help them swim faster and also protect their skin from their enemies. Normally, sharks are not easy to be taken down. In most cases, only humans might hunt and kill them. 

#2. Pangolin

The pangolin is one of the species that are endangered animals in Africa. These gentle insectivorous animals have thick and hard scales covering their whole bodies from heads to tails. Moreover, they have a special habit to protect themselves from predators which is rolling their bodies into ball shapes. Otherwise, this is useless to humans’ damages. 

#3. Crocodile
