Dasypus novemcinctus (Nine-Banded Armadillo).
| Armadillo is Spanish for "little armored one" but German setllers in Texas
called them "Panzerschwein". When I took these photos, the armadillo ignored
me for a rather long time and then suddenly run away. The small photo was taken way back on 7/4/2004 around 11 pm. |
