The Jaguar and the Armadillo

Well, FIFA's here and so is the first sports comic on Green Humour! The Brazilian Three-banded Armadillo called Fuleco is the official mascot for the FIFA World Cup. This armour equipped mammal curls up into a ball at the sign of danger, making it impenetrable to its predators. Populations of the Three-banded Armadillo are declining rapidly owing to habitat loss, and conservationists hope that the mascot for FIFA will help spread awareness about the creature and aid its conservation.
