3. Do armadillo's make good pets?

I've never heard of anyone having one as a pet. Good luck and let us know if you have good bonding experiences with one.

4. Apparently Armadillo's are expensive and can carry leprosy.

Might want to take that into consideration before purchasing one.

"Common Health Problems
Armadillos need space to forage and can become destructive in the home. They are also known to carry the bacteria that causes leprosy in humans, though such transmission is rare.

Purchasing Your Armadillo
Expect to pay $2,000 to $3,000 for a hand tamed, privately bred baby armadillo. You will not want to adopt a wild or adult armadillo, as it will be very difficult to care for and train.

If you do decide that you want an armadillo as a pet be sure to check your local laws first: Armadillos are wild animals, and their status varies from state to state. If your state allows you to own one, and you're prepared to make your home fit for a burrowing, insect-eating, eight-acre roaming, nocturnal armadillo, be sure to follow all the local rules for keeping exotic pets."

6. OK, I love all critters but armadillos do kind of creep me out.

Something about their undersides. That one was cute playing, although I don't think I could pick it up.

7. Kind of cat like

Pounce, grab with front paws, kick with rear paws (at least it looked like he was kicking).
