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.
