Everybody knows what an armadillo is, but what an armadillo is was news to me with this article. Fascinating little critter!

There’s more to admire than decoration, such as this amazing animal’s two methods of crossing ponds and creeks. By swallowing air to inflate its stomach and intestines, it becomes buoyant and paddles on the surface. Or it sinks to the bottom and strolls across, postponing its next breath until it reaches the other side. Observers have reported underwater trips lasting six minutes.
