Cingulata

Armadillos

This order of placental mammals contains approximately 20 species of armadillos. They range from the Pink Fairy Armadillo that weighs 3 ounces to the 132 pound Giant Armadillo.

Although the this order's previous Latin name, Edentata signifies toothlessness, only the anteater actually lacks teeth. In fact the Giant Armadillo, with a total of 80 to 100 teeth, has more teeth than almost any other mammal. Armadillos lack incisors and canines. The Armadillo's teeth lack enamel and are ever-growing and rootless.

Although much larger in prehistoric time, today the order Cingulata consists of only the family Dasypodidae, which includes the armadillos There are 10 genera and ~20 living species in this order, all of which are native to the Americas.

Until recently, Cingulata was placed in the order Xenarthra (now considered a superorder), along with the anteaters and sloths.
