As I was focusing on the many small and low plants in the sandy open spaces around the buildings of Pousada Xaraés, this armadillo was passing by.

As with the others I’ve encountered here, it was moving quickly, sniffing in one area for a short time, then quickly moving on. Here it’s superficially digging into what seems like an old armadillo burrow. I first thought it was residing there, but alas. It moved on, I guess in search of suitable sustenance.
