The Nine-banded Armadillo is a cat-sized, armored, insect eating mammal.
We live adjacent to a wild area and large lake in North Texas. Since we love to watch nature, we created a certified wildlife habitat, a certified butterfly habitat, and a half acre garden with over 300 unique plants specifically to attract a wide variety of nature. We also have two large natural koi ponds with stream beds to attract birds, reptiles,butterflies, etc. We use no insecticides or pest control services.
The Armadillos are a family that have moved in to our backyard. There are 4 babies. We normally see two at a time.
Lat: 33.15, Long: -97.02
