This Is the Outstanding Lifestyle of Armadillos

Armadillos belong to the order ‘Cingulata’. They are related to Anteaters and Sloths (superorder Xenarthra) who belong to the order ‘Pilosa’.

The two groups can be separated in that Armadillos have an armoured upper body and Anteaters and Sloths have fur. Check out these facts!
