Pink fairy Armadillo Chlamyphorus truncates
I have recently been reading about some of the worlds rarer and lesser known animals.
My favourite so far has got to be the pink fairy armadillo. It reminds me a bit of a clanger.
They really are pink and partly fury so whats not to love?
Pink fairy armadillos only grow to just under 5" in length and live in the dessert areas of Argentina, being nocturnal they are rarely seen by people. They do not do well in captivity so are not seen in zoos and cannot be kept as pets.
There are a few stuffed exhibits in museums.
I have sculpted a very tiny one and it is now up for sale in my Etsy shop.
I plan to make more of these lesser know animals in the future so watch this space for more unusual and unique miniature animals.
