O dilloing in his armour

An armadillo is a mammal noted for its armour and ability to curl into a ball.


  • 'Nonsense!' said Mother Jaguar. 'Everything has its proper name. I should call it "Armadillo" till I found out the real one. And I should leave it alone.'
  • I've never seen a Jaguar,
    Nor yet an Armadill-
    o dilloing in his armour,
    And I s'pose I never will,
    Unless I go to Rio
    These wonders to behold--
    Roll down--roll down to Rio--
    Roll really down to Rio!
    Oh, I'd love to roll to Rio
    Some day before I'm old!
  • The ancient owls' nest must have burned.
    Hastily, all alone,
    a glistening armadillo left the scene,
    rose-flecked, head down, tail down
  • For a single armadillo, you will own,
    On Salisbury Plain in summer is comparatively rare,
    And a pair of them is practically unknown.
  • Dada doubts everything. Dada is an armadillo. Everything is Dada, too. Beware of Dada. [1]
