Humble TX Opossum on the Half Shell
The Critter Team is a licensed and insured wildlife management company that specializes in the removal and control of all wild animal species, including armadillos, birds, snakes, skunks, rats, raccoons, bats, opossums, squirrels and more. You’re probably wondering why in the world an armadillo is referred to as an opossum on the half shell. Well, the entire body of the armadillo, except for the underbelly, is covered with a boney shell. The flexible bony plates give this unusual mammal somewhat of a prehistoric appearance.Zoologists tell us that there are 20 different species of armadillo. Each of the 20 species has been categorized as a three, six or nine-banded armadillo. The bands indicate the number of boney plated segments common to each of the species. Humble Texas armadillos have nine bands, so they can really dig. The flexible boney plates allow armadillos to dig and burrow through the soil with surprising quickness and agility.
No, that armadillo isn’t digging up your landscaping just for fun. They’re hunting for small invertebrates, including worms, earth grubs, cockroaches, mole crickets, beetle larvae, army worms, termites, grasshoppers, yellow jackets, wasps, flies and ant larvae. Armadillos use their pig like snout and peg teeth to dig up 200 pounds of bugs and other critters each year. That’s why you have a hole dug in yard, tunnel in yard or burrow in mulch bed.
