It's not the prettiest animal.

But it can get poachers a pretty penny.

Prince Muusha, the driver of former Zimbabwean ambassador to China, Christopher Mutsvangwa, was arrested for possession of a Pangolin last weekend, according to a report by Zimbabwean daily NewsDay.

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.
