Transcript of Pink Fairy Armadillo!

ARMADILLO Why is the Pink Fairy
Armadillo Endangered? The Pink Fairy Armadillo is endangered because of habitat destruction. It burrows in very dry soil. They like to live on grasslands in central Argentina. They are victims of land clearing and plowing everywhere. The Armadillo mating season is 2-3 months out of the year. Pink Fairy Armadillos are ready for reproduction when they are 9-12 months old. The gestation period is 60-120 days. What are Some Adaptations That the Pink Fairy Armadillo has? What can we do to save this animal? We can't do a lot because it is hard to know where they live because they are nocturnal. We can not plow in places in Argentina where it looks like a place they might be based on the habitat. What does the Pink Fairy Armadillo eat? The PFA mainly eats ants but also can eat snails and plants. It is a omnivore. It burrows near ant hills so it can have a constant food source. What are the Pink Fairy Armadillos predators? The Pink Fairy Armadillo doesn't have many predators, but when it feels threatened it can bury itself within seconds. It's main predator is humans. But domestic cats and dogs also prey on the PFA's. Does the Pink Fairy Armadillo Have a Specific Mating Season? If so, When? What are Some Cool Facts about the PFA? What is the Behavior of the Pink Fairy Armadillo? The Pink Fairy Armadillo prefer to live alone, only getting together to mate.

The Pink Fairy Armadillo ranges in size from 3 to 5 inches long, excluding their tail. They are the smallest species of armadillo. This helps the PFA because it allows them to bury themselves quickly in the ground and helps them not be seen as easily. The PFA spends most of it's time underground.
