Our 6 Banded Armadillo, Ethel.



This is Ethel, she is a bottle raised 6-Banded Armadillo. Despite short legs, the armadillos move relatively quickly, and with their strong feet and thick claws they can burrow with considerable speed. The six-banded armadillo, the three-banded armadillo, and the giant armadillo are among the South American species. They vary in size from the giant armadillo, which is almost about 3 ft long excluding the tail, to species only about about 6 in long when fully grown.
