A doggerel series about odd or little-known animals.
Pink fairy armadillo. The world's smallest and probably cutest species of armadillo, this strange animal is endemic to the warm sandy plains of central Argentina, occurring south of Mendoza province as well as north of Rio Negro and south of Buenos Aires. The species prefers to burrow in very dry soil. However, they will leave their burrows if they get moistened by rainfall. The burrows are often located near anthills, so that they are close to their main food source. (All animal info from http://www.strangeanimals.info/2015/05/pink-fairy-armadillo.html#ixzz4XHWtjEqh)
The smallest armadillo lives
In Argentina now.
In northern worlds he was so teased
He fled aboard a scow
And settled in the pampas, where
He had more time to think—
And where he was not teased because
He happened to be pink.
And now he is much happier—
His life is now in synch.
He and his bride spend evenings now
With MP3s of Pink.
