I love Armadillos, RadioLab is right, they do look prehistoric!
Armadillos are so cool. I mean, this dude looks prehistoric. And I bet he’d be good at yoga. Those are his little ears tucked under his rear end in that second photo. What a weird and funny creature.
(These photos are from photographer Tim Flach, who has a great series on the human qualities of animals. If you like these, don’t miss his photos of bats. They’re creepy and endearing all at once.)
just. so. weird.
