My animal is the Armadillo. Its scientific name is Dasypodidea. The Armadillo is a mammal. It can way from 3oz. to 120lbs and can be 5-51in long. They have bony plates covering their body, they can be almost any color.. Armadillos have some adaptions. One is they have horrible eyesight so they have a keen sense of smell. They are omnivores and eat bettles, ants, termites, and small plants. They get water from small lajkes and bodies of water it finds. They do not really have a shelter. Armadillos are prey to many other animals. Here are some interesting facts about Armadillos. Not all armadillos can encase themselves in their shells. Only the three abnded armadillos can.
