What does an armadillo eat?

An armadillo doesn’t wear that armored shell for nothing! A number of predators, or natural enemies, like to eat armadillos. Chief among them is the coyote. But such predators as bobcats, cougars, wolves, bears, raccoons and even some of the larger hawks and other birds of prey will also attack and devour an armadillo.

Some people in Mexico, Central America and South America also eat armadillos, whose meat is sometimes used as a substitute for pork.

So, what does an armadillo eat? Armadillos primarily eat grubs, ants and other insects.
