This Big hairy armadillo Animal of arid habitats has long, coarse hairs projecting between the 18 or so distinct bands of bony, skin- covered armour on its body. Some of the 7 or 8 bands are hinged. When threatened and unable to burrow, it tucks in its feet and presses its armoured body into the ground. This protects its softer Big hairy armadillo Animal, white- or brown-furred underside and provides an effective defence against both canids and birds of prey. In summer, it is mainly nocturnal and eats varied small prey, from grubs to rodents. In winter, activity is mainly by and the diet includes more plant matter.
