Six-Banded Armadillo (Euphractus sexcinctus)

Scaled collection of drawings of Six-Banded Armadillo in various poses with dimensions

The savannah and even drier areas of eastern South America (Euphractus sexcinctus) are the ideal places to find the Six-banded Armadillo and its burrows. Some communities call it the yellow armadillo. A unique feature of this armadillo is the reddish-brown or pale yellow carapace covered with white bristle-like hairs. The forefeet has five toes. It is solitary, alert, and omnivore, with a good sense of smell, but has less-developed eyesight. The head is pointed and flatted and is also covered by large plates with distinctive patterns. Females give birth to live young ones.

The Six-Banded Armadillo has a body length in the range of 15.75”-19.7” (40-50 cm) and total weight of 7.1-14.3 lb (3.2-6.5 kg). The Six-Banded Armadillo has an estimated standing height between 7.5”-9.8” (19-25 cm), body width of 6.3”-7.9” (16-20 cm), and tail length of 7.9”-9.8” (20-25 cm). The typical lifespan of the Six-Banded Armadillo is between 15-22 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.
