Armadillo-Leprosy link?

I know, I know! I should have done a search. This is definitely something Cecil will have already expained, but its been bugging me for a couple of weeks now. NPR had a woman on Morning Edition who mentioned it in passing ("well, everyone already knows this and…"type of answer) and then Eve mentioned someone performing Armadillolingis on television in a post in IMHO.

And basically, I want to know–Is there any sort of link between leprosy and armadillos?

You have weeks to be bugged by this but no time to do a search? Do Armadillos Carry Leprosy?

I KNEW that was going to happen! I accidently had the new thread open and…Jeez, I hate when that happens.

I don’t want to make you feel any worse than you must already, TVtime, but here is another related story
