It sniffs with a snout pressed close to the ground, smelling for a tasty treat. After a quick scratch of the ground with sharp claws, the armadillo’s tongue does the rest of the work to snatch up a tasty ant snack. Whether the size of a chipmunk or a large dog, armadillos are awesome! Learn all about this mammal in bony armor.

“Playful chapter titles and occasional interjections like “yikes” and wow!” create a lighthearted feel in these animal profiles, but there’s also plenty of useful, well-organized information. VERDICT: Well-rounded overviews with a light touch that might draw more reluctant readers.” –School Library Journal review of Library of Awesome Animals
