Well i've been hearing for a while now that the armadillos were moving northeastward. I saw one this morning dead on the road near Fayetteville. Apparently their cousins, the 'possums, taught them their road safety skills. That's the first one i've seen this near to home.

Do they eat the fire ants? I've seen a few of those hills in my yard this spring.

Don't armadillos carry some nasty disease?

How could i forget those killer cows?? You have to watch them, they slip up on you quietly at night, your first clue that you are in danger is their hot breath on your neck!!


"Love Bugs" ??? hmmm. so many comments... The mind boggles

The furthest north I've seen an armadillo (dead on the highway, of course) was just this last week just outside Tullahoma.

Why did the armadillo cross the road? We don't know...not one has ever made it.

I saw a dead armadillo on the road today in Columbia, TN. I had to look twice since I hadn't seen one here before. However, I could be mistaken.

I've seen a number of dead armadillos over the years.

There's a simple answer to the question "why did the chicken cross the road?"


To prove to the armadillo that it could be done.
