JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Chances are, if you've been searching for a new house pet without shelling out a bunch of cash, this isn't the kind you had in mind.
An enterprising Jacksonville resident has taken to Craigslist to get rid of a "herd" of armadillos. The unnamed poster, who claims to have piled up the critters over the years, says they're putting the armored animals up for grabs -- to a good home, to be certain.
The poster's hawking them in the "Free Stuff" section of Jacksonville's Craigslist website. And one, or all, of them can be yours for no charge.
"I have a herd of free armadillos," the advertisement says. "I have caught numerous ones over the years and I just don't need them anymore please contact me to come pic (sic) them up. Calls preferred."
