A small mammal with a leathery hide. It can roll into a ball to escape predators.

A small, mundane creature, armadillos are infrequent and appear just one at a time. They take 2 years to reach full size, and will live to be 10 to 15 years of age. Males are called boars, and females are called sows. It may take a while to establish a breeding program; however, it may be useful for their shells in areas that are not safe, or have no water to fish in.
