Armadillo

Previous Image Gallery Home Next Image
Armadillos are prolific diggers, and many species use their sharp claws to dig for food such as grubs, and to dig dens. In Florida the Nine-banded Armadillo prefers to build burrows in moist soil near the creeks, streams and arroyos near which it lives and feeds. The diet of different armadillo species varies, but consists mainly of insects, grubs and other invertebrates. Some species, however, are almost entirely formicivorous (feeding mainly on ants). Armadillos have poor vision but are not blind.
