Involuntary Hippophagia: accidentally eating horse meat

Involuntary Hippophagia is a term which refers to unknowingly ingesting horse meat. And unfortunately it’s a term that comes up every now and then when it comes to feeding captive pangolins. Typically, wild pangolins eat ants and termites. But when a pangolin is kept in the zoo, feeding it can become a challenge. Zoo keepers often supplement it’s diet with eggs, boiled roaches, porridge, apples, and yes, even horse meat. Poor little guys. What a terrible surprise. One minute you think your eating porridge, the next you realize it’s horse meat.
