Armadillo, the meal that jumped.
If you don’t understand this, ask. The explanation is a little funny (but not to the armadillo.)
I dropped a small (less than foot long pecan wood) stick on the head of one to get it out of my garden. That thing hopped, jumped and flopped around like it was in the mortal thrall of death itself!
I’ve never seen an animal put on such a fake show as that. Maybe birds trying to fake an injured limb to draw a predator away from the nest is the nearest thing like it.
I guess it is a survival technique because it sure freaked me out. I thought it was having a fit.
