Actually some do eat armadillo. South of the border mainly but back when I was a kid, we visited my aunt and uncle in Beeville Tx. Dad, Uncle, and I went quail hunting in the mesquite brush.
Armadillos were running everywhere, so Uncle popped one and took it home to eat.
Basically gutted it, cut the meat out of the shell, seasoned it adding potatoes carrots and onion into a foil pouch.
Built a fire in the back yard and dug a hole next to it.
Once a bed of coals was built, the coals were put in the hole with the foil packet on top, then covered with dirt.
4 hours later, took it out and ate. I remember everyone commenting it tasted like pork.
Fast forward to today, I wouldn’t eat one of the nasty vermin unless starving. They do carry leprocy so if you kill one, use rubber gloves or something before touching it for disposal.
