fairy armadillo

tiny and pink, the smallest member of the armadillo family is a sand swimmer. it uses its large front claws to loosen sand and then glides through as though it is water. is that incredibly romantic, or what? it’s also hell of efficient–fairy armadillos can completely bury themselves in seconds. this is their dominant defense, and they don’t roll up into balls like their larger cousins. also they look like little pink armoured bullets, and that is strangely cute.

this photo leads me to believe they make excellent pets

but really. these guys top out just under five inches. don’t you just want to go for manicures with this little buddy?

‘would you like to come in for some tea?’

let’s get matching nail polish–what do you think of the sky blue with sparkles?

these little sweethearts are endangered, due to cattle ranching encroaching on their natural habitat (they are from argentina). i would say that going vegetarian and thus never eating argentinean beef is a great way to save them, but then you guys might think i’m fanatical, so i’m not going to say it and then we can still be friends.

i know! we can get a ‘best friends forever’ necklace and we can each have half and then we will really be friends foreverrrrrr
