Muzzle velocity at point of entry is greater from a .22 than from a .38.

.38 projectile presents a wider surface area with less forward speed,
although a greater projectile weight, it's ability to penetrate is less.

Armadillo have survived almost as long as sharks in the great scheme of
things.. seems they adapted rather well to most threats.
