March and April are typically the time our animal friends are giving birth.  So I usually put my traps away till they are old enough to be on their own.  This time we were not so lucky.  Mom was gone and within a day, these 4 youngsters toddled out of their location under an executive suite.  There were 4 baby armadillos that were still too young to be on their own.  Armadillos always give birth to 4 babies and they are always the same sex (little known fact).  Thankfully they were brought to a local rehabilitator.
