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.
Yellow armadillos usually live on their own in the wild when adults.
