The fast reproduction rate, coupled with the small amount of creatures that prey on the armadillo, has allowed the Armadillo's population to spiral out of control. In the late 1800s, armadillos in America where only found in Florida and states around Mexico. By 2000, armadillos where common in Arkansas, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma.
