Armadillos are burrowing, chiefly nocturnal mammals with strong claws and a jointed protective covering of bony plates. Armadillos tend to like dark, enclosed places, like the space inside clumps of bushes or behind low-hanging brush. If you repeatedly notice armadillos in your yard, consider changing the landscaping to eliminate their potential shelter. The word armadillo means ‘little armored one’ in Spanish. Bernard Welton, of Land O’ Lakes, caught these two out and about behind his home.
