You ask if most people dislike them, anybody who owns land or farms land in the in the South will almost certainly have little good to say about them. They are like mini-hogs constantly rooting for insects and tearing up pastures, cropland, flower beds etc. Their worst habit iin my mind is the burrowing of numerous holes throughout pastures and fields. Holes deep enough to be dangerous to man and livestock alike. I have seen cattle with broken legs from stepping in holes and will not let my daughter ride her horse any longer at our hunting club due to the incredible number of holes in the fields.
The owner of farm I lease broke the front end off a 100hp tractor after hitting a hole while baling hay. So yes we dislike them and shoot them whenever possible as they are a menace.

OK OK....... how many of ya's Yanks an' furriners knew that armadillos JUMP??? At least in Texas the little critters will launch like bony frogs.

Picture that little critter outlined against the sunset in the windshield of your liddle econo-boxster.......at 70mph.

They can jump 3-4ft into the air! It's gross when they jump up UNDER the truck or lodge in the grill but it's a whole 'nuther story when they come over the freakin' hood.....

The brutes are about deaf and blind as you can walk right up on them, but once they smell you after you've snuk up on'em, watch out. Like alinwa said, they'll jump and be up around your head. Ask me how I know this.:D

From knowing 1/5 of a far call about them, to beeing on my list in 4 days.

I saw a bit on T.V. about them. David Attenborough tried to be nice about them ,but also being a furriner he does'nt have to live with them.
Thanks for the info bloke's.
