I am pretty sure no armadillos around here. We have had raccoons but I normally see them on the cameras I have.

Raccoon's, opossums, or a dog after something are my best guess. Any foxes around?

Saw a fox a couple of years ago but not recently. Not a dog. My guess is sneaky raccoon but like I said I get them on the camera usually.

I kinda think armadillo too. I rarely see them but usually you can tell when they get in a backyard and dog flower beds up like that.

Have not seen a real big lizard. Iguanas don't last long around here. Between my neighbor and me they don't stand much of a chance. Also I think this happened at night and I don't think they are active after dark. I am leaning to raccoon or maybe squirrel. Wife said what about a woodpecker?. We have those.

woodpeckers would not rip that apart like that down on ground level.
even the big redheads drill holes and make nests up high in trees and poles, but I never heard of them hanging around on the ground or during the night.
never seen or heard of a squirrel out at night either

That looks exactly like what my dog does to my trees.
