Roll Away

You don't know how much I wish I had this particular talent of the armadillo. Some guy starts bugging me for pocket change, I fold up and roll past him. My boss walks in, catches me blogging, and I collapse in on myself and roll under the desk. My wife wants me to change the boy's diaper, I roll away and barricade myself in the bathroom. So many possibilities.

What I particularly love about armadillos is how well their heads and tails fit into the opening. Now THAT'S evolution!

Monster said...

Yes, what a perfect DESIGN "evolution" has come up with.

eh, armadillos have never looked so pokemon-ish.

For the sake of everyone's sanity, can we not turn this into another evolution vs. creationism debate?

On topic: that's a cute armadillo.

I think they're cute. I also love that they can transmit leprosy, which is super ugly.

Erin said...

Can't armadillos spread gangrene too?

Sometimes I wish I could roll up and hide within myself too.

AND a female armadillo will always give birth to four identical quadruplets. A single fertilized egg splits to form four embryos. Tres cool.
And these guys should either get royalties from Transformer toys or LucasFilms...if these aren't organic versions of the Trade Federation's droidekas, I don't know what is.

It looks like a coconut to me.

I never knew that about the quadruplets. My esteem for the armadillo has grown.
