I am a children's librarian and this year for our Boo @ the Library program I decided to do an unusual animal costume.  I was hoping to get the kids to ask what I was so I could guide them to a book display on the topic.

After looking through some lists I chose the pink fairy armadillo:


And here's the costume:


Big claws for agitating the sandy ground so they can "swim" through the soil:


Lots and lots of scales or scutes that make up the top layer of this creature's bony armor:


I had a special nametag made for the day that says "Pink Fairy Armadillo."  Thanks for looking!
