Satiating the armadillo paparazzi

The Minnesota Zoo today announced the birth of an armadillo, the third one born in a U.S. zoo this year. It noted that for the health of the baby, no media photographers would be allowed to take a picture, which only makes us want one in the first place.

The zoo provided this photo along with the factoid that a baby armadillo is about the size of a golf ball.

    They should put it on a tee to better illustrate the point.

    Thank you Dale Connelly for your masterful tribute to this little creature, in yesterday’s StarTribune Opnion/Commentary section. It was worthy of Ogden Nash.
