It is not every day you hear a story about armadillos, and that is why this sweet video of a baby armadillo drinking water from a cup is extra special.

Dehydrated and desperate for a drink of water, this baby animal took a risk and trusted the offer from this human stranger. Watching this little guy lap up the water with his skinny pink tongue, we cannot help but smile. Even though armadillos are not typically portrayed as creatures with distinct personalities, this baby armadillo shows us just how much character and pizzazz this fascinating species really has.

This uplifting video shows us the positive impact the kindness of humans can have on wild animals. Although we applaud the compassion of this man, please remember to take careful precautions when encountering wild animals. If you believe a wild animal is in danger or needs help, please contact the appropriate authorities to address the issue. Click here for a list of some who could help.

One armadillo is cute. Two or more will tear up your lawn.
