The Pink Fairy Armadillo is the smallest species of armadillo, growing only to approximately 3½ – 4½ inches long, excluding its tail. It is found in central Argentina, where it inhabits dry grasslands  and sandy plains  with thorn bushes and cacti. It has the ability to bury itself completely in a matter of seconds if frightened.

  1. Hi Gail,

    I am a photo editor at Scholastic in NYC. Can you please let me know if you are the photographer for this image of the hand holding the pink fairy armadillo? Or if you would please share the contact information of who owns this photograph? We are working on a book about tiny animals – we are interested in publishing this image in the book.
