Oh goodness .. . . These little fellows are all over the place around here! They are seriously EVERYWHERE! I think we have armadillo overload in Georgia.
A delightful shot of this one! I don't think I've seen an armadillo on Panoramio until now! =)
That's kind of funny, MaryAlice We don't seem to have that many over in Augusta..
Is he eating something? Great shot with wonderful detail!
I am not sure, Joyfotos if he is eating something or not. There were actually three of them.
Did you know, the armadillo crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico in the late 1800’s and introduced in Florida at about the same time by humans. And by 1995 the species had become well-established in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.
So they are introduced species down here. So, MaryAlice, is it weird that they are so common, but really non-native?
Yes, I knew and have always wished to see them alive but so far no luck:) Thanks for sharing yours!
