Armadillo – 4k Wallpaper
The word armadillo means “little armoured one” in Spanish. All species are native to the Americas, where they inhabit a variety of different environments. This particular armadillo is a nine-banded armadillo. The nine-banded armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus), named for the nine breaks in the leathery armor that allow it to flex its stiff hide, is an odd-looking mammal about the size of a cat. A mature armadillo is 15 to 17 inches long (not counting the tail) with a weight of 8 to 17 pounds.
