...Though much smaller: the Pink Fairy Armadillo, which appears to have been originally gene-engineered by the Wee Folk as a battle animal. A big one is over four inches long; huge examples can approach 6" from head to tail, all with very definitely pink armor. And while armadillos can be pests themselves, it seems these little critters are very fond of ants, to the point of siting burrows near anthills in order to have a ready source of snacks.
Y'know, we could use one of these outside Roseholme Cottage -- if the giant slugs didn't get it.
