God Created Small Animals
"Then God said, 'Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind--livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals.' And that is what happened." (NLT)
Sorry this isn't a better picture, but this little guy was skittish and fast. He definitely was scurrying as he moved into the undergrowth. The hard-shell covering, the armor, is easy to see and is the most evident characteristic of the armadillo. Since the armadillo is a shy inoffensive animal, God gave him a protective covering. It seems that God provided a means of protection for each animal He created, from sharp teeth to armored skin to great speed. Compare the armadillo to the housefly or to the eagle or to the elephant or to the great blue whale and realize the almost limitless variety of animals that God created. Our God is magnificent, and a small part of that magnificence shows in the unbelievable number of life forms He created. Thank you, Lord, for providing us with such a glorious universe.
