On a hot afternoon last week, Cledson Matias de Oliveira was driving down a rural route when something in the road caught his eye.
There, standing in the middle of the street, was a little armadillo. He seemed to be flagging Cledson down.

Not only was it particularly hot out, the air was also smoky from wildfires burning in the region. Cledson rightfully assumed the little armadillo was thirsty.
So, after moving him to the roadside, and fetching water from his car, the kind passerby offered the armadillo a drink.
“He drank the water with great desire,” Cledson said. “He was really happy [I stopped]. I could feel it at the moment.”
