Pictured: The overweight armadillo.
An overweight armadillo has been put on a special diet after overindulging on bugs, eggs and vegetables.
Gretel weighs 3750g (3.75kg) and has to lose a total 500g.
The one-year-old mammal is now on a new eating and exercise plan to shed the extra weight.
Gretel arrived at Drusillas Park, Alfriston, East Sussex, last February from Askham Bryan College, Yorks, and will be two in March. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS.
