Armadillo on Ice in Chinatown

This is one of the greatest "only in New York" pictures I've ever seen. A friend of mine saw a strange creature on ice at a fishmonger in Brooklyn's 8th Avenue Chinatown.

How did it get there?
My scenario: There was a truck driving food from the Southwest, or Mexico, where a hapless armadillo accidentally got on board. The animal made it to Chinatown, where puzzled, some shopkeeper just decided to do what he did with everything else: put it on ice and sell it.


  1. That assuming the rats in this city haven't gone all Darwin and armored up.
