Usually when I see an Armadillo it is partially hidden by heavy brush or making a fast exit. This was one of the few times I’ve seen Armadillos out in the open and the first time I’ve seen a pair together.
They were just off a wooded walking path, very intent with their snouts to the ground.
As I walked towards them they didn’t give any indication they heard me.
They just kept rooting around in the pine needles as I passed by.
