Hands Around the World
Hand Made Native American and Ethnic Sculpture
Hands Around the World is dedicated to providing a marketplace for traditionally produced Native American sculpture. Sculpture making is one of the oldest Native American arts, being present in largely unchanged form. The Indians had created a repertoire of sculpture shapes and design elements specific, if not unique, to each tribal grouping. The variety and beauty of these creations are prized throughout the world. Sculpture crafts are ideal for starting a Native American art collection. We also have sculpture by artists from Indonesia and Mexico. The unique sculptures include dragons, figures, animals, dolls, and warriors. They are made from corn husks, pottery, or carved in wood. Atzompa is a tiny village in Mexico known for it's pottery including the fanciful and intricate munecas, or figures. The Guahibo Indians live in the Amazon Basin of South America. The women make dolls from bark and fiber, decorated with seeds. The Yekuana Indians are a very traditional tribe living along the riverbanks in the Amazon Rainforest in Venezuela. The men also carve benches into likenesses of jungle animals. The jaguar is often used as it is the symbol of the seat of power. The thinker which symbolizes God is another design often used, especially in shamanic items such as ceremonial rattles. The Piapoco Indians also live in the Amazon basin of Venezuela. The Piapoco men and sometimes women carve animals such as the eagles and armadillos from light weight balsa wood, plentiful in the rainforest.

Armadillos are an amazing group of animals that originated in South America. Armadillos are mammals , just like you. Contrary to what you may have heard, the armadillo is neither a rodent nor a marsupial, and they are not related to the opossum any more than you are. There are twenty different species of armadillos. They belong to the order Xenarthra, family Dasypodidae. Their closest relatives are sloths and anteaters shell three-banded armadillo Armadillos are built to dig. They have short, strong legs that are well suited to rapid digging, either for food or for shelter. Like their cousins, the sloth and anteater , armadillos have strong claws giant armadillo peg-shaped .

Smokin Armadillos

What they found were six good looking, clean cut and courteous young men. The kind of men who make women swoon. A band whose energy drives crowds crazy. Musicians who make great music. And they're poised to leave country music singed and smokin' with their self-titled MCG/CURB debut album. Meanwhile back at the ranch, when Josh finally arrived home he scribbled his idea onto a piece of notebook paper and gave birth to what eventually became the first Armadillo original 'I'm A Cowboy'(he really is). It was a stompin' romp of a song. Actually it was just the lyrics. Actually it was more of a rap that Cowboy Josh performed on request at banquets and talent shows. Friends kept telling him he ought to add some music and suggested he collaborate with a young fiddler in town. Enter quietly Jason Theiste(J.T), a nearly-silent young man with championship credentials and a bold and boisterous fiddle, Josh's friends were right. Music was a must. A rap and a fiddle. This had some quirky potential.

Then what constitutes scientific misconduct? According to Dr. Clyde Watkins of Office of Research Integrity , the official government definition was fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism. We flunked his test. Of three words we used to characterize a major scientific crime , only one was on his list, and we used it out of order. Therefore, he dismissed our appeal for a hearing. Since then, the Ryan Commission has compounded the problem by redefining misconduct as misappropriation, interference, and misrepresentation. Now, ORI has six words they can Babelize to block the public from hearing the truth about misconduct in science.
In reality, we did not get a hearing because our case incriminated U.S. Public Health Service officials, and Office of Research Integrity would do anything in their power to protect them, including a sophomoric juggling of words.
The clumsy deceptions used by USPHS to obstruct justice are more frightening than the crimes they committed to begin with. You can pick up this labyrinthine trail of deceit by visiting

Fun Facts
A distant counsin of the sloth and the anteater , the Nine-Banded Armadillo originated in South America. It immigrated to Texas by way of Mexico in the 19th. century. Its name comes from a Spanish word referring to its armor like covering. The shell is made of a bone like casing. In the Nine-Banded Armadillo (the only species of armadillo found in Texas), the armor consists of a large shield over the shoulders, a second large shield over the rump, and nine bands in the middle. Because the shell itself cannot grow nor be replaced as the armadillo grows, it is soft and leathery when the armadillo is born. It does not harden until the armadillo reaches its full adult size of 8 to 15 pounds. While not as slow as the sloth, the armadillo rarely hurries. Walking on the soles of its back feet and the tips of its claws on its front feet, the armadillo ambles along at no more than a third of a mile per hour. However, the armadillo is able to run when danger threatens. Its hard shell allows it to run through thorny underbrush when fleeing predators. The armadillo has a particularly interesting method for crossing water. Its heavy armor shell causes it to sink. When faced with a narrow stream or a water filled ditch, the armadillo will simply walk across the bottom, under water. However, when up against a wider body of water, the armadillo will swallow enough air to inflate its stomach to twice its normal size. This increased buoyancy then allows the armadillo to swim across. Afterwards, it takes the armadillo several hours to release all the excess air from its body.

Order Xenarthra
(armadillos, anteaters, and sloths)
Xenarthrans radiated in South America during the Tertiary, when that continent was isolated by sea from other continents. The group currently includes armadillos 2-toed sloths 3-toed sloths , and anteaters , placed in four families containing 29 species. These animals are mostly insectivores and herbivores of small to medium body size (up to around 60 kg). In the past, however, xenarthrans were much more diverse and numerous. They radiated into around a dozen families, including not only the groups known today, but also such animals as giant ground sloths, some of which were larger than elephants; glyptodonts, reaching 3 m in length and the most heavily armored vertebrates that ever existed; and a large number of smaller grazing and browsing forms. Several groups of xenarthrans successfully crossed the Central American land bridge to North America when it formed in the Pliocene; these included a number of kinds of ground sloths and armadillos. Only one species, however, an armadillo ( Dasypus novemcinctus ), is still alive today.

Armadillo are timid, armored mammals that live in warm grasslands and forests from South America up to the southern United States. Armadillos are burrowers who dig underground dens. Armadillos can jump 3 ft (1 m) straight up into the air. Many armadillos are killed when they are run over by cars. Anatomy : Armadillos are protected by plates of bony armor covered with skin. Many armadillos can curl into a ball when threatened by predators. There are 20 different types of armadillos that range in size from 6 to 60 inches (15-152 cm) long. Diet : Armadillo are primarily insectivores (insect-eaters). They dig into the earth using their large claws to find food. They use their long tongue to get ants, beetles, termites, worms, grubs, other small animals and eggs. Armadillos have peg-like teeth. Reproduction : Most armadillos give birth to one or two offspring, but the Nine-Banded Armadillo always has identical quadruplets (4 babies that come from one egg). Classification : Class Mammalia (mammals), Order Edentata (anteaters, sloths, and armadillos), Family Dasypodidae (armadillos), Genus Dasypus.

Armadillos are found throughout the Southern U.S. The South's high temperatures, humidity, and sandy-loam soils create the prefect habitat for this animal.
They are known to be voracious diggers, digging burrows as long as 15 feet. This often causes damage to yards as well as homes and driveways as the animal burrows beneath.

The University of Michigan Museum of Zoology Animal Diversity Web About us ... Glossary
Armadillos range from the central United States south through Central and South America. They are by far the most diverse group of xenarthrans, with 20 species in 8 genera. To most of us, the defining feature of armadillos is their " shell ." This structure consists of bony scutes covered with thin keratinous (horny) plates. The scutes cover most of the dorsal surface of the body. They are interrupted by bands of flexible skin at least behind the head, and in most species, at intervals across the back as well. The belly is soft and unprotected by bone except insofar as some species are able to curl into a ball. Hairs project from the areas between scutes, and in some species the ventral surface is densely hairy as well. The limbs have irregular horny plates covering at least parts of their surfaces; they also may be hairy. The top of the head is always covered by a shield of keratin-covered scutes, and the tail is covered by bony rings. Armadillos vary in size from the tiny fairy armadillo (120 gms) to the giant armadillo (60 kg). Body length ranges from about 125 mm to around 1 m. The snout is short and triangular in some species, long and tubular in others. Some species have large external ears, others do not. The eyes generally seem small. All armadillos have powerful forelimbs, with 3-5 digits (depending on the species) tipped with heavy, curved

About Us Campaigns How You Can Help Government Affairs ... Armadillos Armadillos
HSUS Although armadillos have several unique characteristics that distinguish them from other mammals, the more than 2,000 bony scales that cover the head, legs, and back are their most notable features. The Spanish word armadillo means "little armored one." The "armor" of the armadillo is composed of bony plates covered by a leathery skin. While this hard shell offers some protection, it cannot really repel predator attacks. However, it may provide protection when the armadillo coils himself in his burrow and a predator cannot get enough of a grasp to do any damage. Armadillos range throughout the south-central and southeastern United States and may now be found as far north as Oklahoma and Arkansas. This range expansion has been aided somewhat by humans, who have transported armadillos to other parts of the country. Originally native to South America, armadillo colonization in the U.S. seems to have taken place only within the last 150 years. The armadillo found in the U.S. is called the nine-banded armadillo ( Dasypus novemcinctus Armadillos live in a variety of habitats, including thorn scrub, mixed grasslands, and wooded bottomlands. Their preferred habitat may be wetlands with dense shade and sandy soils that are easy to dig. River valleys and areas around creeks, stock ponds, and reservoirs are choice armadillo habitats. Usually nocturnal, armadillos dig numerous emergency and temporary burrows. These may range in depth from 20 inches to 20 feet. More permanent abodes may include a network of tunnels with three to four entrances.

Armadillo Control Products Armadillo Information Control Measures Armadillo Damage Armadillo Control Summary An Armadillo can cause tremendous damage to cultivated areas such as your manicured lawn, golf courses. This damage is due to this mammal's diet of grubs, insects and other small invertebrates. While hunting for food, an Armadillo can wreak havoc on turf, digging small to medium holes in numerous locations. While there are many people who are fascinated with the Armadillo and its habits, those who spend many long hours cultivating a nice lawn do not appreciate their grassy front yard resembling a mine field!
These armored mammals can also cause great damage to ornamental and fruit trees. The burrows (which can run up to 25 feet long) often disturb and damage the root systems of trees and shrubs. This burrowing activity also damages concrete slabs, creating air pockets beneath the concrete that weakens (and many times cracks) the foundation of homes and other buildings.
Homes built off-grade (including mobile homes) are not immune to Armadillo damage. Their tunnels help create water run-off problems and often cause flooding beneath homes.
