When we moved here from Illinois we would start seeing them as road kill before we got to St Louis. After a trip back noticed was seeing them 30 mile farther up the road. Maybe are going to start crossing with possums to have a little fur for winter LOL.

I am a seafood and exotic meat wholesaler in California. Does anyone trap enough armadillos to be able to sell to me?

have seen them in Franklin, Jackson, and Williamson Co for over a decade now. Was on my way to STL yesterday, and saw one hit on 64, just west of Nashville.

Soft shell Turtle, I could catch you a bunch but I don't know the legalities of selling the meat here in Texas.

It's legal in California to import them dressed. Just check with your state by calling the department of fish and wildlife before you sell to me. I don't want any of you good folks to get stiffed with a fine.
