Nine-banded Armadillo is the most widespread of the armadillos. The armadillo can jump three
to four feet (90–120 cm) straight in the air if sufficiently frightened.
Armadillo is a Spanish word meaning “little armored one” and refers to the bony plates that
cover the back, head, legs, and tail of most of these odd looking creatures. Armadillos are the
only living mammals that wear such shells.
Closely related to anteaters and sloths,
armadillos generally have a pointy or shovel-shaped snout and small eyes. They vary widely in
size and color, from the 6-inch-long (15-centimeter-long), salmon-colored pink fairy armadillo
to the 5-foot-long (1.5-meter-long), dark-brown giant armadillos. Others have black, red, gray,
or yellowish coloring.
Contrary to popular belief, not all armadillos are able to encase themselves in their shells. In fact,
only the three-banded armadillo can, curling its head and back feet and contorting its shell into a
hard ball that confounds would-be predators.
