Lunchtime fright

We had a lunchtime fright, we heard a muffled scream and out from underneath a bush ran a Screaming Hairy Armadillo.

Its name is derived because it screams when it is threatened and has long flowing hairs along the flanks of the body.

The Screaming Hairy armadillo has 18 bands of which six to eight are movable bands.

The Armadillos are a very ancient group of animals, alive when the dinosaurs roamed the earth and could be called a ‘living fossil’.
