An armadillo takes a dip on a hot summer night

Did you know that armadillos like the water? We had no idea until one of our cameras caught this little guy taking a dip in a water dish to cool off one hot Texas night. First he just cooled his toes, but that must have felt so good he soon decided that a real dunking was in order.

We’ve done a little reading now and have learned that armadillos are good swimmers and can even walk along the bottom of a stream or pond for several minutes.
