Armadillo Skulls and Skeletons are museum quality, polyurethane resin casts. Armadillo Skulls and Skeletons are made in USA.

Armadillos meaning little armored ones in Spanish are New World placental mammals.

Armadillos are characterized by a leathery armor shell and long, sharp claws for digging. They have short legs, but can move quite quickly. The average length of an armadillo is about 30 inches, including its tail.

Armadillos have very poor eyesight, and use their keen sense of smell to hunt for food. They use their claws for digging and finding food, as well as for making their homes in burrows. They dig their burrows with their claws, making only a single corridor the width of the animal’s body.

The armor is formed by plates of dermal bone covered in relatively small overlapping epidermal scales called “scutes” which are composed of keratin.
