Nine-banded Armadillo


We went to the San Angelo State Park wildlife viewing area this morning  to feed the birds and we surprised this Nine-banded Armadillo romping in and around the little pond.  I believe it is an adult pregnant female.  Enjoy the photo and click on the image for an enlargement.

    • I would estimate that the body alone on this one to be 24-30 inches in length. Actually, I think it is the largest that I have come across.
