The Armadillo really is unique with its thick scaly carapace. It covers the whole body, leaving only the pointed nose and eyes exposed. The long nose gives it away: the Armadillo has a keen sense of smell to sniff out insects even when they are buried deep in the ground. It doesn't mind the heat. After all, it is at home in South America and used to hot days.
The Armadillo is unmistakable and certainly has a very descriptive name. Its thick scaly armor is composed of several belts that run around its entire body. It looks kinda cute. Especially when it runs nimbly across the desert on its short legs. It has probably tracked down a tasty morsel with its sensitive nose. Most of all it loves to eat insects. When it's digging them out of their underground hiding places, the armadillo can hold its breath for up to six minutes! After that, we have to admit, it has really earned its meal.
