COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - A new book takes a look at the official state mascot of Texas -- the armadillo.
The author of "Dillos," Bill Klemm, is a retired Texas A&M University professor of neuroscience and veterinary biosciences.
The mammal known for its coat of armor has been proliferating in much of the southeastern United States since making its way from Mexico 150 years ago.
A year in the making, "'Dillos" shows Klemm's academic pedigree with a detailed index and 11-page source list. But a mere glance at the cover quickly dispels any notion this is a dry textbook.
After all, how many textbooks feature a color photo of roadkill on the cover?
