The nine-banded Armadillo is the most numerous of the 20 species and the only one found outside South America, having colonised the southern part of North America. It also digs a burrow whilst the other species prefer a den. Armadillo's always give birth to 4 identical young, having developed from the same embryo, the only known mammal to do so.
