Did you know armadillo means "little armored one" in Spanish? These fascinating mammals are the only ones in nature to be covered with these hard scales of armor. Armadillos are prolific diggers too. Karen Zunie's splendid armadillo is carved from sandstone with turquoise inlaid eyes. It measures about 2 1/2" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1" tall.
