Just be careful and don't cut yourself when gutting them. And fry them really done. You'll be fine...

Not all Armadillos have Leprosy but they CAN contract it. If they DO have it, then it will cause them similar problems to humans but as they are small and tough it is a bit less problematic for them. You are correct about needing to contact their bodily fluids, especially blood. Also around 98% of all humans are naturally immune to Leprosy and it is easily cured in first and second world countries assuming you have access to some form of health care.

We talked about this in micro class. I think it's because of their body temperature stay 68°

There yo go 2 medical doctors.You cant trust a doctor.State of Tn And georgias website said there are 150 cases a year in the us from just handling banded Armadillos.They are just starting to figure it out i guess.Jack hanna was on Dave letterman a couple of month ago and told Dave the armadillo they had on had been tested for leprocy.watch the video it on youtube!Great video brother

@simplecommentary lool, Im more on the carnivorous side myself, just finished eating some liver and eggs, and it sure was good!!! as I see it If you kill an animal for food its nature, but if you kill an animal for fun, you are messing with nature, I like all animals ( EXCEPT MOLLUSCS MAINLY SNAILS AND SLUGS) and believe they only should be killed for food

@simplecommentary yeah in the exam comprehension it said that their eye sight is poor and in the reasearch when they were collecting armadillos it said that it was really funny chasing them and that they bumped into trees all the time!!!

@simplecommentary we'll see how it goes!!! thanks for the reply (I never actually seen an armadillo lool they arent found locally in malta)

hey, you look like you know your armadillos so Ill ask you my question... I had an exam (biology a level) and the comprehension was on armadillos and leprosy, and one question said why do only very few numbers of armadillos show signs of leprosy? my answer that I tought logically was since armadillos have a very tough leathery shell therefore leprosy signs (which in humans show as skin lesions) do not show up in armadillos?? so do yo think its good ?? thanks

Very True.... I have grown up all my life looking up to Armadillos...I would never eat one and I have always wanted one as a pet. I dont know, maybe I need to buy a Bunny. lol
