Pilosa

Anteaters and Sloths

This order of placental mammals contains approximately 30 species of anteaters, sloths and 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, Edentadia signifies toothlessness, only the anteater actually lacks teeth. In fact the Giant Armadillo, with a total of 80 to 100 teeth, has more teeth then almost any other mammal. Armadillos lack incisors and canines. The Armadillo's teeth lack enamel and are ever-growing and rootless.

The order Pilosa consists of anteaters and sloths. Until recently, Pilosa was lumped with the armadillos in the order Xenarthra, now generally regarded as a superorder. In the past, these families were classified together with the pangolins and aardvark as the order Edentata.
