Armadillo

One of the armadillo’s oddities is that all the young in each litter are of the same sex.  The scientific name of the nine banded armadillo is Dasypus novemcinctus.  Dasypus is from the Greek word for rabbit, novem is from the Latin word for nine and cinctus is from the Latin word for a band.  Adult armadillos weigh about 12 pounds.  Armadillos are able to swim.  Armadillos are good jumpers and can jump about 3 feet straight up in the air.
