The Toadadillo is a small reptile and mammalian hybrid found in wetlands throughout North, Central, and South America. Their body characteristics combine elements of the Yosemite Toad, a Nine-Banded Armadillo, and its tail resembles that of a crocodile. Their diet consists primarily of smaller amphibians and fish. They are most agile in water but venture on land to search for insects when aquatic food sources are scarce.  The Toadadillo’s shell coloration is muted browns and tans. However, during mating season, the shell changes to red, orange, and yellow. Toadadillos carry leprosy and will jump aggressively during this time. Remember the saying, “Stay away from Toadadillos in May.” if you encounter one in the wild.

 

This original artwork was designed, carved, and printed by Lyell Castonguay. Ink is applied to a carved wooden block and hand-pressed onto Japanese Chiri. Chiri has randomly distributed bark pieces sprinkled throughout, so every sheet of paper is unique. The artwork is signed in pencil by the artist.
