Dig, Dig, Dig, Burrow, Burrow, Burrow is the motto of the Pink Fairy Armadillo. As the smallest in the family of armadillos (only 3.5-4.5 inches in length & 4.2 ounces), the pink fairy is a threatened species that is quite weird, yet beautiful, I think, with its rosy pink dorsal shell. It’s the only armadillo with a dorsal shell that is completely separated from its body. If you happen to frighten it, it can bury itself in a matter of seconds. I would never want to scare this little creature, it just looks so innocent and sweet.
I have a confession: I love animals. Join me and the rest of the Featured Creature community as we learn about the weirdest, coolest, and craziest animals out there. Including your dog, Mr. Scrufflebutt (if you submit him!).
