The driver of Zimbabwe's former ambassador to China, Christopher Mutsvangwa, was arrested for possession last weekend, according to a report by Zimbabwean daily NewsDay.

But Prince Muusha was not arrested on the kind of possession charge more common in the U.S.. He was arrested for possessing a Pangolin. 

What's a Pangolin, you might ask? 

The animal is one of Zimbabwe's protected species. It is also known as a scaly anteater. 

Police officers swarmed Muusha and another man's Nissan Almera after an informant tipped the authorities off that they were going to sell the critter.
