Kingwood TX Opossum on the Half Shell

It’s a strange nickname, but armadillos are peculiar looking mammals. The body of an armadillo, except for the belly, is covered with a shell of flexible bony plates. They’re kind of prehistoric looking, actually. Zoologists have identified as many as 20 different species of armadillo.

The various armadillo species have been divided into three, six and nine-banded armadillos. The bands represent the number of boney plated segments common to a particular species of armadillo. Kingwood Texas armadillos have nine bands. The boney plates make it possible for the animals to dig and burrow quickly.

Armadillos dig through the soil to find small invertebrates, including worms, earth grubs, cockroaches, mole crickets, beetle larvae, army worms, termites, grasshoppers, yellow jackets, wasps, flies and ant larvae. Armadillos employ their pig-like snout and peg teeth to meet their dietary needs. An armadillo consumes around 200 pounds of bugs each year. That’s why you have a hole dug in yard, burrow in mulch bed or tunnel in yard.
