Abstract

The occurrence of five juvenile nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus) is reported from a trail-camera picture. This photo was taken as part of a larger study investigating the dynamics of a medium-sized mammal community in an urban area. While quadruplets through polyembryony are the normal number of offspring born in a litter, the occurrence of more than four juveniles with an adult is documented along with a snapshot of the interaction between two of the juveniles.
