ARMADILLOS

The armadillo has poor vision making it somewhat vulnerable in its environment. It counters this vulnerability with a hard outer shell and wedge itself into burrows and curl up into a ball leaving no soft body parts exposed to danger.

  • In North Texas their primary food source is grubs and worms. They often tear up lawns and flower beds seeking such prey. Armadillos are known to devastate land scape yards, especially in time of drought.
  • Trapping Armadillos can be quite difficult because baits are ineffective, and they can be inconsistent in their travels.
  • The armadillo also has long claws which the armadillo uses for digging burrows and hunting for insects in the earth. The armadillo is generally an insectivore meaning that the diet of the armadillo is primarily comprised of insects.
  • The nine-banded armadillo has reached the United States, primarily in the south-central states (notably Texas), but with a range that extends as far east as South Carolina and Florida, and as far north as Nebraska and central Indiana. Their range has consistently expanded in North America over the last century due to a lack of natural predators.
