Easter Armadillo?



The game cam didn't capture the Easter Bunny this year...

All we got was an Easter Armadillo!

Why do I suddenly feel like Elmer Fudd? ;)

How funny! Did he leave you any chocolate?

An armadillo came last night
and stole my Easter Eggs
He found my chocolate bunny
And bit off both his legs!

I caught him in the very act
As he munched away with glee
So there is no Easter Bunny
For the bloggers here to see.

Love your game cam pics!

Fantastic photo! Matt says in Texas he only ever saw dead armadillos - this is the first he's ever heard of a live one. :)

Great picture. It appears to be rooting. Is that how they find food?

Bobby said...

We have those down here in Florida. I'm afraid they're not very good at crossing streets.

I would love to see this Armadillo with bunny ears! Thanks for the smile!

Here I thought it was a walking Cherimoya! ;-)

There once was a fine armadillo
who hid colored eggs neath the willow
He shudda wore pink
on the part that goes clink
so I won't have to stuff ears with pillow

LOL! Your game cam is amazing - thanks for sharing - too fun. How very cool that you've had an eagle visit. Years ago, a bald eagle landed in our neighbor's tree for a short visit - it was great. We see them around different parts of the lake, but usually not in our yard.

I love the hill on your property. And it was so nice to see some spring blooms - thanks! I am becoming a little impatient - we don't usually have blooms this early, but this winter was horrible, and I'm ready for a little spring.

Maybe he was just relieved that he made it past the dress up for Easter weekend without being made into a purse.

Love the critter cam, Rurality!

I have lived in Texas all my life and didn't know about the Easter Armadillo. That just shows how secretive they are here. Troy in Ft. Worth.

PS; I always enjoy your blog even if I don't always comment.

Too much to do, so little time.

Perfect: Peter Armortail :0)

Rurality said...

Thanks everybody. Sorry I didn't get back here before now! Sadly, the Easter armadillo didn't leave us anything but a bunch of holes in the ground. They do root for their food, and it's a very sandy area where the game cam is now... easy digging. Maybe I should set up a trap and go into the armadillo purse business. Hmm. ;)

We have seen a couple of live ones walking around here. (I think that's how you know they're getting more numerous.)

Wow, comment poems and puns! Superb! I'm not worthy. :)

Easter Armadillo! Sweet!

Kerri said...

Oh Cute! Uh, I don't think I'd want any choco covered eggs from him, though.

What a hoot!! HOw cool that you captured the moment, too!
