Series of measured illustrations of the Screaming Hairy Armadillo

The Screaming Hairy Armadillo (Chaetophractus vellerosus) is considered the hairiest armadillo. The hair is white and light brown and covers the limbs, belly, and between scutes. The rest of the body is covered in thick armor that is moveable, allowing the animal to curl up if threatened. It is also the smallest and known as the crying armadillo, small screaming armadillo, or small hairy armadillo, endemic to central and south South America in places with loose sandy soils, savanna, and sun dunes. It is a solitary species that loves to burrow a lot. Besides, it is omnivorous and gives birth to live young ones. During winter, it is diurnal but nocturnal in summer.

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.
