Gargantuan Armadillo Fossil

Time to rename my blog :-)

Ice Age armadillos the size of cars, fossil shows.

"It was an animal that appeared 2 million years before Christ and would have died out 10,000 to 15,000 years BC because of a freeze," Mr Luna said.

He said the fossil was "almost complete" and was two metres long including the tail, 1.1 metres wide and with an average height of almost one metre.
