Last week a wrote a post about the glyptodon, after encountering them for the first time (so far as I recall) in a click-bait article that day. Earlier this week I saw a mention of them. Then came today. Blogger, historian, and author Alma Boykin (TXRed) has a fascinating blog post today (After the Ice Retreats: What comes Next?) that makes mention of "armadillos the size of a VW Bug," likely a reference to the glyptodon. Check out her post if you want to learn more about what the land might have looked like in the wake of the retreating glaciers as the Pleistocene drew to a close.
