If you’re referring to the ones in Fort Davis, I knew them growing up.

I moved out of the Big Bend and haven’t seen Bob or Sheri in a couple of decades.

That's awesome. First thing I thought about was the old barracks at Camp Crowder, MO where they used to keep Nazi POW's

I've never eaten one but I'd give it a try.

My old neighbor (in her late 80s) says there's nothing better than armadillo!

How did you get the shell off?

The ranch foreman trapped them and cleaned them for us. We usually bring them beef of some sort so he traded us for some armadillo

It's good man, taste and texture are kinda like pork.

I sauteed the backstraps (if you can call it that) out of mine and it was really close to pork loin, maybe a little sweeter.

It's good stuff, just wear gloves when you are cleaning them haha

If I trusted the hunter and the cook - I'd try it. But I am not going out of my way to clean and cook up a dillo.

I'm not kidding. We had dog a couple of times while in Honduras back in '81. Tasted similar.

I’ve had it when I was working in Trinidad. It’s a special meal around Christmas. They chop it up, shell and all, into pieces about 1”x1”, then sauté it and you basically peel the meat off the shell with your teeth. They hunt them with dogs, but these are much bigger than ours, 10+ pounds. I also had iguana when I was there, we grilled it, pretty dang good, meat was kind of sweet.

I had armadillo chili when I was a kid, it was great.
When I was about 12 I tried like hell to clean one, that's when I found out the rib bones are connected to the shell. I made a total mess out of that thing before I finally gave up. didn't know about the leprosy. Nothing has fallen off.
