Pink Fairy Armadillo - Little, Pink, Armored Fairies


pink fairy

 

This is the very smallest (only 5-6 inches (12-15 cm)) of all the armadillos and is the only one with such strange fashion sense. It has very light pink colored scales and fluffy looking white fur underneath. Sometimes the scales are less pink and a little more yellow or brownish.

They live only in Argentina on the sandy plains and in arid grasslands and brush land. Its preferred food is ant larvae and ants but they will eat worms and other creepy crawlers as well as a few plants and roots. Their sturdy claws help them unearth the food they eat and also swim, claw, and drag themselves through the sandy environment they live in.
