Pearl, Sound like our moles. They tunnel just under the surface for worms, etc. creating a raised soil path which, when you step on it, collapses and could cause someone to trip if they were not careful. Under the lawn areas you just sink a little. We don't worry about them much. The gophers can do much more damage when one gets the idea he likes the taste of iris rhizomes.

Armadillos are hunting grubs. I don't think they eat the plants but they do mis-place them. They aerate the soil, but they don't bother to level it. They are more a nuisance than anything else.
Of course, we do not have any armadillos in Los Angeles. What do they eat? the plants or the insects and worms around them?
