This Texas-size Armadillo bank measures 16" tall x 8" wide and 10" deep and is made of polyresin.
Its "shell" resembles that of an armadillo, and it's wearing a holster with two "six shooters" (I think) around his waist. He's got his cowboy hat on, and he's big enough to fill it up with lots of change.
The armadillo's head, feet and tail are well defined (if that can actually be used as part of the description)...and it's probably one of the most unusual armadillo "novelty" items we've found.
This is a fun Texas Bank...and one that not only will collect a lot of change, it's one heckuva conversation piece as well!
Like any good Texan...there's always more to the story....I called the lady in Louisiana who had called us about the bank to begin with. She said she had been all over the internet, and only our store popped up when she was looking for this specific bank...so of course, I had to do a search for "armadillo banks." While our store immediately popped up, so did this interesting article that I just HAD to share. This is from the "AC The People's Media Company" and was written by Lu Baker, entitled "Top 10 Gift Ideas for the Texan." This armadillo bank came in #5.

#5. "Sheriff Armadillo Coin Bank- An armadillo in the house, so stand back, stranger: this looks like a taxidermist's that has gone wild. This based on the Kitschy flea market find of the decade, the original antique stuffed armadillo was posed with the leather holsters and hat; this much detailed resin reproduction is a coin bank that nobody would dare raid, given ammunition and the credential guarding your wealth."
