Captive breeding is one of the alternative solution to reduce the extinction of pangolin (Manis javanica Desmarest, 1822). This research was aimed to determine the feeding intake and the growth of the pangolin body through the provision of alternative feeding from agricultural wastes and rotten woods. The research was conducted at Multi Jaya Abadi Captive Breeding, located in Medan North Sumatra. Four pangolins were used as material for this study and the observation was done for 14 days. The pangolins were treated with four types of feeding treatments, i.e. A (mixture of rice bran, corn flour and kroto), B (mixture of rice bran, cornflour, and worm), C (mixture of rice bran, corn flour, and cricket), and D (mixture of rice bran, cornflour, and termites). Of the four treatments, feeding alternative of D was the most preferred by pangolin, followed by alternatives A, B and C. This result showed that pangolin in the captive breeding in Medan prefer feeding termites (24.24%), then followed by kroto (20.97%), worms (10.56%), and crickets (9.17%). Keywords: Agricultural waste, captive breeding, feeding alternative, pangolin.
