This is video of me having a BIG surprise. While videoing an armadillo at Myakka River State Park, I heard a sound behind me. Looking over my shoulder, I saw eight large, wild pigs, standing ten feet away. I am not sure who it scared more.

That's amazing, I have always wanted to see an armadillo! I would have screamed too.

I love armadillos. Those pigs must have really scared you! I probably would have screamed. (I'm a girl.)

If that was a armadillo then is it true that they roll up into balls?
Have you ever seen do that?

Yes, I have seen them do that, but only when they can't get away. They can run very fast, so they don't have to do that often.

Did the armadillo see the pigs as a threat? Was he as scared as you were?

No, the armadillo ignored me and the pigs. It just kept on rooting around in the leaves.

I thought those were wild dogs at first. Wild pigs can kill people right? What a scary experience. Did they eat the armadillo?
