Nine-banded Armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus)

Origin: North and South America

Sighted at: Parmer Business Center, Jollyville, TX

“Brendan,” said my friend Rachel, “There’s armadillos outside the office at work.” Naturally, I jumped in the car and drove there immediately. These little fellows – there were about four in total – seemed relatively nonplussed by the foot traffic nearby. They were more interested in hunting for worms!
