I've been seeing armadillos for months around the Memphis area. I work outside, and I see alot of animals running around neighborhoods (armadillos, coyotes, deer, fox). A few nights ago, I saw 3 armadillos together in one corner of an apartment complex. They will walk right up to your vehicle while its running.

That's so strange! Are they attracted to the noise? And why do they jump straight up? They just kinda fascinate me.

We used to see them in West TN occasionally, but they have gradually been advancing to the east and north.

It may be the noise or the smell of the car. Who knows. I have pulled up next to an armadillo several times and they don't run away. I've also had coyotes come very close to my running vehicle after sitting still for a while... They are too curious. Every time I see a fox, it is moving in fast forward.
