Armadillo Scrub

I was in the Peruvian jungle, when a young American who was apprenticing to be a shaman told me about a stuffed armadillo he saw in a market in Lima. He asked if they do use the stuffed armadillo in rituals, the stall owner said "no", while heaving a cage with a live armadillo on the table, "we use this one."
