According to Google, the animal is not only the world's only scaly mammal, it is also the world's most trafficked mammal.
The Doodles for February 11, 12 and 13 - all of which turn into an interactive game upon clicking - feature a pangolin looking for the ideal Valentine's Day gift for its mate.
This Valentine's Day, Google wants to spread the love with a new playable Doodle that aims to raise awareness of the looming extinction of the pangolin.
Protecting the wildlife may not be among the top things that come to mind when thinking about Valentine's Day, but Google thinks it should. Monday's Google Doodle is a game that focuses on a pangolin's efforts to meet its long-distance soulmate for Valentine's Day - but throughout the four chapters you learn "a thing or two" about the scaly mammals. To get more information and see how you can help, check out this page on the World Wildlife Fund site. "Pangolin populations have been devastated by poaching, including at least 80 percent of pangolins in Asia", adds the WWF. The rampant illegal trade combined with a rapid loss of habitat has led to the eight species of pangolin becoming critically endangered.More news: Real Madrid vs. Osasuna live stream
Those who miss-out on the Google homepage game on Valentine's Day are still able to play.
Head over to Google's homepage to play the mini-game and show some love for the endangered pangolin.
The animated doodle takes one of the pangolins on a long journey through Ghana, India, China and the Philippines to teach it how to best romance its partner.
When the game ends, the pangolin finally makes its way back home and the pongo-couple lives happily ever after.
