Armored Animal


What's for dinner

Armadillos eat ants, termites, maggots and sometimes plants.

Although pink and soft when it is born, the armadillo will grow hard, bony body plates to protect it from predators. Even its tail is armored! These tough animals live in dry areas of the western United States and throughout South America--using a long sticky tongue, a good sense of smell and sharp claws to find food.
