Good news to me, armadillos give me something new to hunt and are some funny little critters! They might root around and dig, but the tradeoff is worth it.

Not much of a hunt to it Madtown. They aren't scared of people at all. You can actually walk up and nudge one with your foot before it would even acknowledge you being there. They'll jump up in the air and haul tail after that. They'll pretty much be like possums and just root around in everything.
You'll be in for a surprise if it hits you when it jumps. It's like getting hit in the face with a basketball or something. Don't be careless when driving and you spot one either. Those little suckers are capable of doing some damage to your vehicle cause they jump. Hitting a possum, raccoon or whatever is one thing. You're running over them. If they jump and you slam into em head on it'll mess up your front end pretty good.
