Welcome to a brand new episode of The Backyard Naturalists, the show that brings the wonders of nature to your ears. We're thrilled to have you joining us from 115 countries, all 50 states, and our beautiful Carolinas. We're particularly excited about today's episode as we welcome back our friend, Marvin Bouknight, the host of "Walkin' on the Wild Side" podcast. In this episode, Debbie and Laurie dive deep into the intriguing world of armadillos, or as Debbie and Chris affectionately call them, "possums on the half shell."
What makes an armadillo an armadillo? Tune in to find out as we explore their various species, life expectancy, habitat, and reproductive habits. We'll even discuss whether they pose any health risks to humans and offer insights on how to identify these unique creatures if they happen to wander into your backyard. So, grab your headphones, settle in, and let's embark on this armadillo adventure together!
