Nine-banded Armadillo

Dasypus novencinctus

Description:

Came across my youngsters from 2009 and decided to share a few more pictures. Greyish animal with a hard back and tail covering, perky ears and an undying interest of probing for insects

Habitat:

At that time their den was under a front low wall a short distance from the front of our house. As long as you didn't make a loud noise, they were content to nose all around the yard.

Nice animals but don't handle them. They are carriers of disease.
