In the Spirit of Silly Tuesday...
The iconic Texas Armadillos are most often seen dead at the side of the road, unfortunate victims of "roadkill" along highways and busy streets, or in Texas posters, art work and souvenirs.
Gifted with a keen sense of smell, armadillos have extremely poor eyesight. Upon sensing danger, armadillos scurry off to safety at a frantic pace.
This one wondered into our yard from the woods early one evening to search for grubs and bugs among fallen leaves. He could sense that I was nearby, but had to stand up for a better look, before he did scurry off in a panic.
