Armadillo Info:Now here's a crazy critter! The armadillos in Florida are Nine Banded Armadillos. They are not native to Florida, but now they thrive here. They are similar in appearance to anteaters, and their most distinctive trait is their armor. This bony, scaled shell protects it from attacks by predators, which they seem to have few of. Adults are 26-32 inches long including tail, and weigh 10-16 pounds. Armadillos are nocturnal, but on occasion they will forage during the daytime. They eat many insects, or other invertebrates, and some plants, but they seem to love grubs and earthworms most. They are prolific diggers, and often dig in search of insect larvae and earthworms. They generally have poor eyesight, but an excellent sense of smell. They live in underground burrows that they dig, and they often have several in their home range.
Nuisance concerns: Armadillos can and do dig! This is really the only problem they cause. You may wake up to find deep holes throughout your lawn, a result of the armadillo's habit of digging for grubs and earthworms. Florida's sandy soil is ideal to an armadillo, and easy to dig through. Armadillos might also choose to dig a tunnel (burrow) under your deck, porch, shed, or even house. You might suddenly find a large hole next to your house with a lot of dirt piled behind it, about 6-8 inches in diameter. This is an armadillo burrow. They can move quite a bit of dirt, and potentially undermine the stability of a structure if they remove the supporting soil beneath it.
