They are pink when they are born.
And I believe every momma Armadillo has 4 babies and they are all identical.

All armadillos are identical. The babies will be the same sex unless some identity themselves differently.

According to my research, yes it’s true but pretty rare in the U.S. It appears to be more common in Brazil.
Even if it is transferred to a human it is curable.

Used to catch them all the time when I was younger, never gave it a second thought.

My dog Cowboy loves catching the babies. He brings them to me alive. I always laugh.

So, what is up with the money? Can I make money selling them? Cause I have an overpopulation.

Possum on the half shell and tastes like chicken
Watch out for them toenails. They will cut you like a razor. I still have scars from catching baby dillers when I was a kid.

$30,000 for a full adult shell if you can get it into china. They grind it down into a powder and use it to heal skin diseases. Pangolin shell brings in 4 times as more. I would be lying if I had said I hadn't thought about it.

Pretty amazing how that works. As I understand it, the female has one egg, it then splits into two, and the two then split for a total of four. Therefore, all babies are the same sex from the birthing.

Yes. I think the Liberals are all trying to convince us that weíre all armadillos.
