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

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

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

No, the armadillo ignored me

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?
