The chances are that at least once in your life you had to ask that special somebody to go to prom with you. Or a school dance if you’re on the other side of the pond. No matter the name of the occasion, it is always a pretty awkward and truly nervous experience. And if you’ve ever wondered what that might look like from the invitation receiver’s perspective, wonder no more, as these adorable pangolins illustrate that to perfection.

If you’ve never heard of a pangolin, you probably know what one looks like. These adorable animals are basically a real-life Sandshrew from Pokemon, and in the flesh, they’re still just as cute as they are on a card.

These cool animals are truly fascinating. They are the only known mammal to have scales, they have amazing long tongues, and baby pangolins are the only animals that ALWAYS look like they’re waiting to ask you to prom nervously. Just take a look and you’re sure to fall in love with these interesting animals!

“See, I wanted to ask you something…”

“Hmm… How to say this…”

“Would you… Would you like to… You know…”

“Go to the prom with me?”
