The Armadillo is a burrower. It's extra sharp claws allow it to quickly dig under the surface. The armadillo also hunts for it's prey, mainly insects and grubs, underground. While they are known to demolish gardens and whole yards in search for food, they can be extremely helpful to a farmer or gardener. They hunt out and eat many types of insects and grubs which keeps your garden safe. This can often get out of control, leading to bigger burrows and tunnels searching for food and shelter. They often live in a massive burrow and even several burrows together. On average, a burrow can measure a huge 8 inches wide, 7 feet deep, and an astounding 25 feet long! This is precisely why these animals should be removed from a yard.
Armadillos have been known to live up to twenty years and on average live from five to twelve years. After the 2-3 month mating period from July to August, a fertilized egg will often not be implanted for up to 4 months. This is simply to avoid the birth during an unfavorable time. This egg over a period of another four months, will split into 4 separate embryos. Surprisingly, the armadillo normally gives birth to four identical pups each time it gives birth! An armadillo will give birth to at least 50 pups within her lifetime, and several of these pups doing the same.
The fast reproduction rate, coupled with the small amount of creatures that prey on the armadillo has allowed the armadillo population to explode out of control. In the late 1800s, armadillos in America where only found in Florida and states around Mexico. By 2000, armadillos where common in Arkansas, Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. Now, a decade later, armadillos are being found in southern Illinois and Indiana.
