As I passed the Armadillo Pair I was able to get a few closer images of just one.
They spent most of their time rooting through the leaves and pine needles, searching out insects to eat.
Eventually, he meandered off into the woods leaving me with an interesting view of his segmented tail.

Fascinating looking critters and even more fascinating close up.
Very nice series. And a win since none of them jumped 😃😃
Thanks! I was mentally prepared for that, sort of sorry I didn’t get to see it 😜
Nice, Ellen! Curious looking characters.
Thanks, Belinda. They sure are, rather pre-historic looking with that shell.
