Yesterday, while birding, I had the priviledge of running into a 4 pack of armadillo youngsters, hanging out on the trail, doing their armadillo thing. These guys were simply adorable, and they’re the official small mammal of Texas! Nine-banded armadillos always have quadruplets; 4 identical babies, which have split from one fertilized egg. I was happy to see all four babies doing well. This was a serious squeal moment.
