Look what the kids found!

Yep...an armadillo! And no, this isn't the zoo! My kids found him while exploring outside after our 4-H meeting at the county extension office. They have a lot of gardens on the property, so I think this guy was looking for some lunch! He looks a bit bothered by having his picture taken, doesn't he?

I learned later that little Hannah decided to try and pet him (not a good idea!). He chased her away and really gave her a scare. Thank goodness she didn't get bit. They all know that from now on, no petting armadillos!
They also found this little lizard there too. They tried picking him up and he left behind his tail for them! It's okay, it'll grow back.

I wonder what they'll discover next?
