Killer the Armadillo.

World's Largest Armadillo

"Killer" is registered with the Guinness Book Of World Records as the world's largest armadillo -- 48 feet long and 4 1/2 tons. According to the Fall Creek Farms website, Artist Marc Rankin's "large and unusual creations are well known landmarks around the Lone Star State, and Killer is one of his most recognizable works."

A million plus people saw Killer in 2002 -- it was the centerpiece of the Six Flags Best of Texas exhibit. Killer is currently visible during picking seasons at Fall Creek Farms.

[Cullen Crisp, 03/18/2012]

Count us among Killer's fans -- we encountered him in 2002 at Six Flags in Arlington, between the parking lot and the entrance, so hard to miss.
