Did you ever wonder how armadillos drink? I can’t say it is a thought that has crossed my mind either. It is not something you see everyday – even for me here at the Zoo!
Click here to see a video of Doug, our southern three-banded armadillo. He is one of our Education Collection animals that go to outreach programs on Zoo grounds and off site in the community. I recently saw Doug taking a drink and was excited to get this video clip. Armadillos use their long tongue to eat insects – and apparently lap up water!
