I wonder why some roadkill seems to deteriorate faster than others.
When driving down lonely country roads, with not much to notice other than an occassional pickup truck to wave to, noticing the disintegration rate of roadkills can be a fun distraction.
You wouldn't think that armadillos would turn into a flattened pile of mush as fast as something softer and less armor plated like an opossum, or raccoon. However it's been my observation that they tend to "melt" into the road quicker than other types of roadkill.
Maybe they're favored more by the local turkey vultures over other roadkill varieties, and thus are scavenged into oblivion quicker. I hear vultures can be very picky when deciding which dead, rotting, and festering carcass to eat and then regurgitate for their young.
Well, time to make lunch for the girls. Bon apetit!
