Armadillo Keychain

$11.75

Some 15 million years ago, tectonic forces raised the Panama isthmus, joining the North and South American continents. This event, which introduced two previously isolated biotas to one another is known as the Great American Interchange. For a variety of reasons, this interchange tended to be one-way, with North American species moving South, but one notable exception to this trend has been the 9 banded armadillo!

This keychain depicts the hardy and versatile 9-banded armadillo. Every year, there are armadillo sightings further to the North, and unlike most animal invaders, this lovable critter is generally welcomed in its new home and is frequently adopted as a mascot! Hand-carved in great detail, and cast in genuine pewter, this keychain makes a great gift for naturalists and wildlife lovers everywhere.
