Dillos

Whenever people from out of state come to visit, they want to see armadillos. I guess it's like going to NYC and seeing the Statue of Liberty. Or the pigeons.

Texas natives think of them as horrible pests. I have had more than one guest at my house ask why we don't just shoot them. My question (that I usually keep to myself) is: Isn't a dead dillo in your yard even more of a nuisance?

They do have a point, I could post an unlimited series of photos of the holes they dig in my yard.

But I will never be a real Texan, because I think they are so darn cute.

How could you shoot something that looks like this?

  2. They actually are born in sets of 4. These two little ones must have been siblings.
