Brazilian wildlife: Burrow of giant armadillo (Priodontes maximus), Parque Nacional da Serra da Canastra, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Giant armadillos are quite rare and spend most of their lives under the ground sleeping and eating tree roots.  They are hard to see and have an appearance from a time gone by a long time ago... these animals weigh up to 30-40 Kg or more!

Some large format prints (limited edition) are now for sale at Freshwater Studio & Gallery in Missoula, Montana.
