Sissyboy tracks down an armadillo

Post by Sissyboy » Mon Feb 07, 2011 3:22 pm

I saw an armadillo the other day on the way to my favorite fishing hole.

So I grabbed my iPhone and shot a video. (hi-def)

Thought some of you would enjoy seeing a "dillo" if you never have.

I heard you going, "ow, ow!" and read on Wikipedia that they like to run under thorny bushes!

It seems that the "9-banded armadillo" is the one that can roll up like a sow-bug!

Amazing animal! "Armadillos have short legs but can move quite quickly, and have the ability to remain underwater for as long as six minutes. Because of the density of its armor, an armadillo will sink in water unless it inflates its stomach and intestines with air, which often doubles its size and allows it to swim across narrow bodies of water"

God has his whimsies!

I grabbed his tail. But they are pretty strong.

Haven't caught one since I was a kid and I forgot just how strong they are.

Next time. I'll wrastle him.

Grabbing them by the tail doesnt usually work at all you have to grab them in the middle by both sides of the shell and pick them up off the ground. >:)

Funny Ward.

We could cover an objective with thorn bushes.

Welcome to the forums!

Always good playing with you.
