Six-Banded Armadillo, Tatouay, Truncated Clamyphore of Chili
The “Truncated Clamyphore of Chili” is what we now know as the pink fairy armadillo, and the tatouay is also known as the Greater Naked-Tailed Armadillo.
These are all South American armadillos. The one North American armadillo (the nine-banded) is the coolest one, in my opinion. They always have identical quadruplets, because shortly after fertilization, the egg splits into four. Basically, it’s exactly the same thing that happens in humans when identical twins are formed, but each half splits again. They’re the only mammals that reliably manifest this trait, called polyembryony.
