Croc Update (Armadillo World Headquarters Edition)

Armadillo-like crocodile roamed Brazil: researchers - Yahoo! News: "Fossils found in Brazil are from a crocodile resembling a large armadillo that was a predator in the area around modern-day Sao Paulo state 90 million years ago, researchers said on Tuesday.

The 6.6-foot-long (two-meter-long), 265-lb (120-kg) crocodile, named the 'Armadillosuchus,' appears to have been unique to that area, the researchers at Rio de Janeiro's Federal University said."

According to Billy Bob Mahoney, the same creature is now roaming the Trinity River bottoms.

"I swear, it be true" he said in between drinking his beer, tending his trout lines and scratching himself, "I saw one just the other day."

Game wardens will examine the area today along with a news crew from Channel Four in Dallas assuming no high speed car chases happen today.
