Nine-banded armadillos

Detailed Description

Nine-banded armadillos—the only armadillo species found in the United States—are distributed widely across southern states. In a study led by the Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, published recently in Ecology and Evolution, Brett DeGregorio and his colleagues used a large network of trail cameras to learn more about these discrepancies in armadillo behavior in Arkansas.
