Nine banded armadillos aren’t native to Florida but have been here since the 1920’s, so they are a natural part of the Florida environment. They are a rather funny looking creature with their own armor. They are about the size of a cat and can weigh 17 pounds. They are nocturnal and can’t see very well. So it was a surprise to see three armadillos along Holiday Springs Rd. on June 18. They eat worms, grubs, and insects. They like moist ground where it’s easy to find food. They dig burrows for homes or use abandoned gopher tortoise burrows on Hundred Acre Hollows.
