Armadillos are New World placental mammals with a leathery armor shell. Dasypodidae is the only surviving family in the order Cingulata, part of the superorder Xenarthra, along with the anteaters and sloths. The word armadillo means "little armored one" in Spanish. The Aztecs called them āyōtōchtli /aːjoːˈtoːt͡ʃt͡ɬi/, Nahuatl for “turtle-rabbit”:[1] āyōtl /ˈaːjoːt͡ɬ/ (turtle) and tōchtli /ˈtoːt͡ʃt͡ɬi/ (rabbit).[1] @Curionic
