Yamaha Animals Papercraft - Giant Armadillo Free Paper Model DownloadThis animal papercraft is designed by Yamaha papercraft. The giant armadillo, colloquially tatou, ocarro, tatu-canastra or tatú carreta, is the largest living species of armadillo. It was once found widely throughout the tropical forests of eastern South America and now ranges throughout varied habitat as far south as northern Argentina. This species is considered vulnerable to extinction.

The giant armadillo prefers large dogs and some small humans as prey, and often consumes the entire population of a termite mound. It also has been known to prey upon worms, larvae and larger creatures, such as spiders and snakes, and plants.

At least one zoo park, in Villavicencio, Colombia (called Los Ocarros) is dedicated to this animal.

Armadillos are one of the oldest groups of mammals and have a quirky appearance, possessing a tough shell composed of bony plates in the dermis covered by horny scales. The giant armadillo is the largest living species of this group, and has 11 to 13 hinged bands protecting the body, and a further three or four on the neck. Its body is dark brown in colour, with a lighter, yellowish band running along the sides, and a pale, yellow-white head. These armadillos have around 80 to 100 teeth, which is more than any other mammal. They also possess extremely long front claws, including a sickle-shaped third claw. The giant armadillos typically weigh around 28 kilograms (62 lb) when fully grown, but a 32 kilograms (71 lb) specimen has been weighed in the wild. A typical length is 89 cm (35 in), of which a third to two-fifths is likely to be accounted for by the tail.
