>It Looks Like A Rabbit In Armor

18 Jul

>…Though much smaller: the Pink Fairy Armadillo, which appears to have been originally gene-engineered by the Wee Folk as a battle animal. A big one is over four inches long; huge examples can approach 6″ from head to tail, all with very definitely pink armor. And while armadillos can be pests themselves, it seems these little critters are very fond of ants, to the point of siting burrows near anthills in order to have a ready source of snacks.

Y’know, we could use one of these outside Roseholme Cottage — if the giant slugs didn’t get it.

    >Well, it's that, a pangolin or an anteater, and only one is fluffy and pink. Downside, they're very shy and somewhat rare in captivity. Sure you wouldn't like a nice leopard slug?
