You can buy these things. They've been improved. So now you can give one.
I did not know armadillos float on water, and I've had an interest in those things ever since I saw them in Texas and Louisiana. And caught one! It thrashed around like mad so I spun around holding its tail and tossed it away from me and it scampered off into the brush.
Did I ever mention the time I stayed overnight at the Hennigan's ranch and Mary and Gary and I freaked out because the yard lights attracted insects and the insects attracted a whole battalion of armadillos all aiming at the house, marching upon it, up from the bayou, and rearing on their hind legs? Mary opened the curtain, saw them at the edge of the light and screamed. Very Twilight Zone, I've never seen anything like it.
This helicopter gets mixed reviews. People use it once and it breaks. Or it doesn't work at all. Others use it repeatedly, smash it into things and continue using it to their great delight.
