Abby the Six-banded Armadillo

Abby is a very energetic Six-banded Armadillo. One of her favorite activities is running around the Reptile House Lawn with groups of children sprinting behind her. While on excursions around the lawn she has a talent for finding all of the mud puddles and showing off how fast she can dig while looking for worms.

She is fond of apple sauce and fruit baby food. The zookeepers use this to their advantage and will often mix medicine in with Abby’s favorite treats.
