This armadillo was completed by Lee Turner, owner of Turnco Sheetmetal Design. Originally, it was a concrete parade float purchased by and for Good Co. Restaurants. It was moved to its current location at Armadillo Palace on Kirby @ Hwy 59 in Houston, Texas.
Each individual mirror finish stainless steel scale was hand cut (as they were not all the same size). It took Turner approximately three months and a lot of patience to finish the big beast!
Tall "Tails" Can you count the number of scales?
