Nine-banded Armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus)

Series of measured illustrations of the Nine-banded Armadillo

The Nine-banded Armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus) is the most common armadillo occupying several habitats in North, Central, and South America such as dry scrubland, grasslands, and rainforests. It feeds on insects and also small invertebrates. In some places, it is called the common long-nosed armadillo or nine-banded long-nosed armadillo. This animal is solitary, nocturnal, and can jump if threatened. The dorsal section of the body is covered in a body armory of bony plates, and some places, like the head, bony scales. The underside is pale and lacks armor protection. Besides, it has a long pinkish snout, long sticky tongue, and short legs.

The Nine-banded Armadillo has a body length in the range of 15”-22.8” (38-58 cm) and total weight of 17.6-37.5 lb (8-17 kg). The Nine-banded Armadillo has an estimated standing height between 7.1”-11” (18-28 cm), body width of 7.1”-10.2” (18-26 cm), and tail length of 11.4”-17.7” (29-45 cm). The typical lifespan of the Nine-banded Armadillo is between 12-23 years.

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.
