    Default Armadillo!

    I knew about this chahoua behavior and was lucky enough to witness it one other time before tonight. Had a hatchling just pop out of the egg. They are all rather calm when I retrieve them from the hatchbox, but this one was going to be different. As I popped the lid, it was waving its tail back and forth like a rabid mourning gecko. I went to gently lift it out and it took off. I corraled it and got it into its enclosure and it immediately rolled into a tight ball, like an armadillo. It only lasted a brief split second, but is always comical to see!
