The three-banded armadillo, a threatened species chosen as the official mascot for the 2014 World Cup, could disappear entirely within decades, a Brazilian NGO has warned

Indigenous to Brazil, where it is known as the “tatu-bola,” the animal “is at risk and, if nothing is done immediately in terms of conservation, the , species could be extinct within 50 years,” Rodrigo Castro, executive head of the Caatinga NGO, was quoted as saying Saturday.

I was curious, and I did do some research. Bing gave it to me in Portuguesa, which made me irritated, so I dug some mplaore and found the mascot articles which did things for the old ego – like explained, yet again, why I wish I had a gift of tongues

How about that, you don’t need to look for the mascot. The real thing isn’t blue and orange = I don’t think.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
