Historic Creature From Jurassic Park

After seeing Jurassic Park A scant few minutes after dark I dropped my burger and froze in fright. There, lurking and almost hidden Formidable and forbidden, Stood a hideous sight! A historic creature, oh, so scary, With armored shell and feet so hairy, Held me in a hypnotic stare! Its body heavily plated, Bony and variegated, Appeared forebodingly there I grew dreadfully nervous Of this dinosaur, impervious To my imminent cardiac! But later, safely on my pillow, I knew it was only an armadillo Having a Mac attack!

    Those creatures are nothing to fear. They are more afraid of you when they see you. I saw one crossing the road when I was last in Florida. You describe everything quite well with decent rhyming.
