Dasypus Digs Holes in Evolution
Joel Rissinger  

The armadillo (scientific name: Dasypus) is uniquely designed for survival - a tribute to the Designer. He's small, but stocky. He's shy and usually gentle, but he wears a suit of armor. He eats harmful bugs, but gouges the landscape with his tunnels. He is the armadillo - a little mammal that digs big holes in the theory of evolution. The name armadillo comes from a Spanish word meaning "small armored one." His body is encased in a bony shell that covers him from head to tail. Of the 20 armadillo species, the nine-banded is the best known. This species is so named because of the nine separate shells between his head and hindquarters. The nine-banded armadillo is about 2 feet (about 60 centimeters) long, including his tail, and weighs about 16 pounds (about 7 kilograms). He is a nocturnal mammal, usually feeding at night.
