The armadillo is a rather interesting and unusual animal that has a protective armor of “horny” material on its head, body, and tail. This bony armor has nine movable rings between the shoulder and hip shield. The head is small with a long, narrow, piglike snout. Canine and incisor teeth are absent. The peg like cheek teeth range in number from seven to nine on each side of the upper and lower jaw. The long tapering tail is encased in 12 bony rings. The track usually appears to be three-toed and shows sharp claw marks. The armadillo is about the size of an opossum, weighing from 8 to 17 pounds

Armadillos can reek havoc in well manicured landscapes. Areas that receive plenty of moisture such as lawns and plant beds are perfect feeding grounds. The soft soil is relatively easy to dig in and contains a rich assortment of food sources. Damage associated with armadillos includes small cylindrical holes dug in clusters where they forage and you may see large burrow holes where they den. They usually have more than one burrow in their home range.
