  1. three-banded armadillo

    The three-banded armadillo is a unique species of armadillo found mainly in South America, specifically in regions of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay. This mammal is notable for its three distinctive, flexible armor-like bands that cover its back and allow it to fully close its shell for protection. It primarily feeds on ants and termites. Unlike many other armadillo species, the three-banded armadillo is capable of rolling into a near-perfect ball as a defensive mechanism.
