Vancouver Aquarium to add armadillo, others as part of new exhibit

They're part of the Nature's Ninjas interactive exhibit

An armadillo, a hedgehog, and a chameleon are joining up in Vancouver soon.

No, it's not a new local children's book, it's part of the lineup the Vancouver Aquarium will have at their new, temporary exhibit.

"Discover some of the animal kingdom's most clever defense mechanisms up close during an all-new interactive exhibit, Nature's Ninjas: Defenses of the Animal Kingdom!" states the aquarium on their website.

Among those 'ninjas' will be a three-banded armadillo (one of the ones that rolls into a ball), a four-toed hedgehog (from eastern Africa), and a chameleon (the species hasn't been announced, but it won't be a Karma Chameleon).

"Learn all about their unique self-defense techniques during engaging small group talks with dedicated animal interpreters and get hands-on with larger-than-life interactive displays that show just how impressive these creatures' sneaky strategies are," states the aquarium.

The exhibit will run from Feb. 10 to Sept. 4.
