In Texas, a man shot an Armadillo, but Armadillo's thick leather bounced off the body, causing a man to be injured, the local sheriff said. The gunman found Armadillo in his backyard in his home in Marietta, southwest of Texarkana. Armadillo seems to have probably been looking for food in a nutritious land. According to Cass County Sheriff Larry Loew, the man shot Armadillo. "He went outside and fired three .38 caliber revolvers towards Armadillo, but the solid leather of the animal bounced off at least one of the three bullets and hit the man 's chin," Loewe said. The man was immediately taken to a nearby hospital, underwent surgery for chin, and the condition of Armadillo was unknown. Armadillo's leather is like an armor or shield. Because it acts as a defense against predators, it plays a very important role in Armadillo's life. Armor-like leather consists of overlapping corrugated sheets that cover the legs and back. If you feel that you are in danger, you should be in a circle to protect the soft pear. Armadillo's armor in this position is almost impossible to penetrate.
