Anatomy Chart

Thick, articulated hide plating covers the desert armadillo from its snout to its barbed tail. Perfectly adapted to blend into a desert environment, the animal's coloration is a mottled patchwork of sand and tan. With powerful claws for digging protective burrows, a barbed tail, and flexible plating that allows the creature to roll itself up tightly, the armadillo appears well built to defend itself. A small sketch in the lower corner of the chart depicts the armadillo curled up in its defensive posture.
