What am I?

We are western mammals known for our unique armor-like shell and notorious for our digging habits. One us in particular - the nine-banded armadillo - has made its way into the southern United States, and is the focus of this page.  

  • Only U.S. Species: we are the Nine-banded  armadillo(Dasypus novemcinctus)
  • Our average Size: 25-48" long (including the tail); 8-18 lbs.Average 
  • our lifespan in the Wild: 7-10 years 
  • Our identifying Features: greyish-brown oval-shaped body with a long, tapering tail; long head with a pointy snout and small black eyes on either side; hard, armor-like shell (carapace) with 7-11 distinct band-shaped breaks around the center; we have four short legs with long claws designed for digging. 
  • We are mainly insectivores, with over 90% of our diet consisting of animal matter, like insects and other invertebrates. We are also known to eat the occasional reptile or amphibian - especially in colder weather. The remainder of our diet consists of plant matter, although it's been found that most of the vegetation we eat has been consumed incidentally.

 Signs of armadillo damage include:

uprooted plants and seedlings

burrow entrances, about 7-10" in diameter, next to or underneath structures, sidewalks, brush piles, low-lying shrubs, etc.

damaged underground wires or pipes

armadillo tracks: four toes in front with elongated center two toes; five toes in back with elongated center three toes; all claws visible.

We have the ability to carry the bacterium that causes leprosy in humans (Mycobacterium leprae). However, the risk of contracting leprosy from an us is extremely low.
