Armadillos are not blind, but they do have poor eyesight. They rely on their ears and noses more than their eyes to detect food or predators. (When your food is never farther away than the end of your tongue, you don’t really need spectacular vision to find it, do you?)

If you are close to an armadillo, and you stay quiet and stand still, the chances of it not noticing you are there are fairly good.

slide8

Nine-banded armadillos always give birth to four identical young — the only mammal known to do so.

There are either four females or four males.

slide9

Armadillos like to swim, and they are very good at it.

They can even go quite a distance underwater, walking along the bottom of streams and ponds. They can hold their breath for four to six minutes at a time.

slide10

Like most insect eating mammals, armadillos have a very long, sticky tongue to slurp up bugs as quickly as possible. They also are equipped with strong claws to tear open ant nests.

Their cousins, the anteaters, have very similar tongues and claws.
