I found armadillos for sale at a meat market in San Francisco's Chinatown. My question is who buys them, and what do they do with them? And where did they come from? That market has had them on several occasions, so someone must be buying them.

Just to cut off speculation - armadillo is not on the menu in China. None of my Chinese friends have ever encountered an armadillo except as roadkill during roadtrips through the Southwest.
