Description

Discover magazine describes how armadillos have been connected to leprosy and its spread in America. The animals are also used by researchers to study the disease as they have unusually cool bodies. Leprosy thrives only in the coolest part of the victim's bodies and an armadillo's body temperature is typically between 33 and 35 degrees Celsius.
