Thanks Darrel, I forgot to mention, if you want to know more, you can visit Armadillo Online in the links list.
Oh, Armadillo! Looks like the nine-banded one (dasypus novencinctus), which I remember so well from my Texas garden. I lived once in the Texas Hill Country, also known as Texscany (from its slight resembrance of Tuscany) outside Austin. Behind my Texas-size ( fort those not familiar with things Texas = huge) house and yard, there was an untouched prerie - and Armadillos came from there to munch on the results of my gardening labor. :-)). According to neighbors I was supposed to be careful not to corner them, as they might attack...but never heard on anyone earing them... and in Texas I even tried rattlesnake in one country eatery (tastes like chicken - in casze you wonder)... but chicken fried steak was the most typical Texas fare.
oops, my typing today more sloppy than usual. Sorry for all those typos :-((
Tatou... Reminds of that guy off Fantasy Island who shouts: "The plane, the plane..."So, Zooms, does it taste like chicken?
Not really, it is more 'gamey', a very rich and sweet meat, more like pheasant than chicken. (You cook it with the shell on) I don't like to eat meat but will try anything someone cooks specially for me,....... except monkey.
thanks for visiting, it is lovely to see you here.
