I was standing at the kitchen sink looking out the window when I saw the neighbors following a little critter through the street. At first I thought it was a baby squirrel, but it was moving too slowly. Then I noticed the long tail and panicked. A rat!? It was huge! And the neighbors were hearding towards our house!
So I rushed outside where they had cornered the thing under their truck.
"Is that a rat?" I asked in fear.
"No, it's a baby armadillo!"
It was pretty cute watching it sniffing around. I watched it for a little bit before I returned to a barbeque at the other neighbor's.
Then I loaded the picture here to blog about it (sorry, blurry phone picture, no time to get the big camera) and got a closer look. With that scaley tail and weird claws, I've decided that they're not so cute.
