      Hi @thecrazyone
      I’ve no idea I’m afraid – do you know any armadillos?? And do they have leprosy?

      Hi thecrazyone

      I dont know either! leprosy is caused by being infected by a bacteria so I guess if the armadillo was infected then it could. I imagine an armadillo with leprosy would look pretty strange!
