Euphractus sexcinctus

About the Six-Banded Armadillo

Six-banded armadillos have a pointed flattened head, and are covered in scaly plates, with six to eight moveable bands in-between. They also have strong claws for digging. This particular species is not able to curl into a ball like some other types of armadillo. Armadillos are good at swimming and swallow air to help them float.

Yellow armadillos are mostly found on dry savannahs in South America.
