Nine-banded armadillo snuffling in the leaves

After visiting Pontotoc Ridge with the Deep Fork Audubon Society, Karen and Forest and I stopped at Sulphur Springs in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. We walked up the trail for a ways, then sat down so Karen and Forest could nurse. Presently Karen said “There’s an armadillo snuffling in the leaves down there.” My thought was “Yeah, could be a squirrel”, but sure enough this fellow came up to visit us!
