In a restaurant in Saigon they offered the pangolin for 6 million dong (the pangolin weighed 2 kilos). Is that the usual price?
In the black market of Vietnam, the traders will normally sell pangolins to consumers with a price from 180 to 200 USD/kg. In restaurant, they can be priced from 250 to 350 USD/kg. In restaurants the pangolin is sold whole and alive. Some restaurants will slit the animal’s throat in front of you, so the blood can be consumed. For pangolin scales, the prices often range from 600 to 1000 USD/kg
