Sniper, When I was younger I used to day work from time to time for a big ranch outside of Okeechobee. They had a kitchen to feed the hired help and they fed us palmetto chicken (armadillo) a couple times a week.  O0

I've been hearing for years now that armadillos carry leprosy... not an illness I ever want to experience. With that in mind, I don't think I could ever bring myself to eating one.

Armadillos CAN have leprosy, but that does not mean that they all do.
In Texas, about 4% to 10% of armadillos seem to have it.
In Louisiana, up to 53% have been found to be infected.
In Florida, 3 thousand armadillos were examined over 12 years. None were found to be infected.

Armadillos are often used in the study of leprosy, since they, along with mangabey monkeys, rabbits and mice (on their footpads), are among the few known non-human animal species that can contract the disease systemically. They are particularly susceptible due to their unusually low body temperature, which is hospitable to the leprosy bacterium.

~ Medical research was conducted by the US Public Health Service, but was NOT verified by the CDC.

Ya know, the more I think about the critter on the halfshell, It sounds great! All a fella would need would be a big spoon to dig out the goodies.  O0  :) A skill saw or 10" table saw would do a neat job of opening them up and safer than using a reciprocal saw, probably.  O0

So, what the heck is an armadillo classified as? Is it a mammal, rodent, reptile?  Is it an extra terrestrial?
