Do Armadillos Make Good Pets?
Armadillos love creatures, but it is not so easy to take care of them in the captivity. These creatures have unique living requirements that cannot be fulfilled by humans with ease. They need enormous living spaces and feed on insects; it is not possible for an average person to meet their dietary requirements. At the same time, armadillos are secretive and nocturnal creatures; their lifestyle does not match with the lifestyle of humans. Experts reveal that only an entomologist know the right techniques to understand needs and requirements of an armadillo including its living habits, diet, and preferences, etc. With all such details, it is important to mention that armadillos are not the right choice for domestic animals. Moreover, they are not traded like other pet animals because it is quite difficult to find a completely healthy armadillo. Most of these wild animals live with terrible disease viruses that can even get transferred to other animals and even humans when they make direct contact with each other.
Most municipalities and various states of America follow strict rules about not keeping armadillos as a pet at home. In few areas of the country, it is allowed to keep armadillos for biologists, wildlife rehabilitators, and other experts in this field. But the studies reveal that even people who are completely aware of armadillo behaviors also face great trouble due to these animals. It is extremely hard to care for armadillos in a space where you have limited facilities. The owners also need to stay in touch with veterinarians to make sure that armadillo can be protected from disease viruses. In most common cases, these creatures get infected with bacterium named as Mycobacterium leprae and the disease caused by it is known as leprosy.
Armadillos also need more space to live a healthy life. Human beings cannot offer them this much space in captivity. The general home range size of an armadillo is around 20 acres that is difficult to arrange for a person. There is no point in keeping armadillos at home for ensuring good health of your family as well. These demanding animals get aggressive anytime and may scratch or bite you in frustration. This action can further cause serious troubles in terms of rabies virus transfers.
With all such factors, it is not advised to keep armadillos as pets at home. Rather, one should make all efforts to keep these wild creatures away from premises. They have terrible digging habits that make them a big problem for humans. They take very less time to dig big holes on the ground and may affect the foundation of your house. If you live in armadillo affected area, it is better to call professionals from animal removal companies to install proper fences around your house so that armadillos can be kept away. In case if they have entered your property, it is better to take immediate steps to take them out as soon as possible to save your landscape.
