I'm willing to bet it's camera perspective just like those infamous camel spider pictures from Iraq making them look dramatically bigger than what they really are.

It also doesn't help that whoever did this video is a douche with the camera moving around and the stupid music along with not knowing it was an Armadillo. Always trying to sensationalize things.

Read the youtube replies.

The physical appearance of pangolins is marked by large, hardened, plate-like scales. The scales, which are soft on newborn pangolins but harden as the animal matures, are made of keratin, the same material of which human fingernails and tetrapod claws are made. The size of pangolins varies by species, ranging from 30 to 100 centimetres (12 to 39 in).
