Got him!

This post isn’t really photoblog-worthy, except that it is a follow-up to a post from last week.  Monte had built a trap to catch the armadillos who were turning our waybackyard into a lunar landscape.    Well, we caught one!    He’s a Nine-banded armadillo.  They live to be 12-15 years old!

 I was very excited to see, from a distance, that the trap had triggered.  And after sneaking a peek, I was happy to find a dillo inside and not a skunk!  We released him in a wooded area far enough away (I hope) to keep him from returning.

We’ve reset the trap out back, in case there are others in his crew.

Us 1.  Them 0.
