These little armadillos are in the Hall of Small Mammals at AMNH - a somewhat overlooked hall that is more of a walk through really. But it has a lot of little cute mammals that I hope to come back and draw. I didn't realize armadillos were as small as they are. Curled up they are only about the size of a grapefruit.
It has just been bought by my good friend in South Africa, Judy Ryder - also an artist. I can't wait to see it in her gorgeous home in Wakkerstroom.
