To a bug or snail, armadillo bites are painful and deadly most of the time.
However, to anything bigger like humans, armadillo bites aren’t really painful, unless you’re a wuss.
Armadillos aren’t poisonous either, so there’s no need for a trip to the hospital.
An armadillo’s teeth are located at the back of its mouth, so biting is not part of its self-defense strategy.
Good thing too, since it’s one of the few animals besides humans that can contract leprosy.
Armadillos are particularly susceptible to the disease due to their unusually low body temperature, which leprosy bacterium thrive in.
Armadillos are solitary animals that do not share their burrows with other adults.
