Dasypus hybridus (Desmarest, 1804) is commonly known as the southern long-nosed armadillo. Like all armadillos, it bears a carapace of ossified dermal scutes covered by epidermal scales. This diurnal species mainly inhabits grasslands on humic soils in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and southern Brazil. D. hybridus is omnivorous with a tendency to myrmecophagy and gives birth to 6–12 presumably genetically identical offspring. Listed as “Near Threatened” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, it is mainly threatened by habitat loss and hunting.
