20,000 Years Old Armadillo Was Found in Argentina

Armadillo is a small insect-eating mammal surrounded by a hard shell to protect his body. Resembling a large mouse, this creature is one of the strangest looking creatures in the world.

These 20-year-old armadillos, found by an Argentine couple, are not one, but four, and they all seem to be looking in one direction. The generation of these armadillos was thought to have been exhausted 10 thousand years ago, but now four were found in the same place.

Discovery Will Reveal Family Structures

According to the paleontologists, these four armadillo discovered will reveal old family structures, which will reveal whether these creatures that lived 20 thousand years ago have undergone sexual dimorphism.

These discovered creatures have shells 5 feet (1.52 meters) long and 2 inches (5.08 meters) thick. Moreover, these discovered armadillos were a herbivore. Armadillos, which means small armored in Spanish, have been confirmed with the DNA test conducted in 2016 that they are related to modern armadillos.

They Developed Armor for Protection

Ancient armadillos, which developed armor to protect themselves against Terror Bird birds, one of the most famous and ancient carnivorous birds of that time, had bone cells in their tails and could also use them as pointed weapons.

In another study conducted in 2015, a three-meter Gliptodon was found by an Argentine couple again, and the farmer thought of it as a dinosaur shell. Archaeologists continue their studies to find out how old armadillos are and what they are preparing for their end by doing more testing on the found remains.
