Giant Armadillo (Priodontes maximus)

Set of scaled side and front drawings of the Giant Armadillo

The Giant Armadillo (Priodontes maximus) feeds on termites and ground invertebrates. It is the largest of the armadillo species living in South America, preferring savanna, tropical rainforests, and semiarid woodlands. This armadillo spots an enlarged central claw with bony scales covering the carapace. The carapace is lighter on the ventral part and black/gray on the dorsal part. The belly is naked, wrinkly, and pink. The head is conical and pentagonal scales cover the legs and tail. The front claws are extremely long for digging termite mold and searching for prey. It has more teeth than any other terrestrial animal.

Armadillos or Cingulata are nocturnal animals endemic to Central and South America. Most are insectivorous, but others are omnivorous. Their brain is small, long and cylindrical, and with ring-shaped tympanic bones. The most obvious feature is the bony armor covering the back, legs, tail, and head.
