An armadillo is a strange group of animals originating in South America. These animals have a suit of armor to protect themselves from predators.

They have just a few natural enemies like hunters, dogs, and automobiles. Check out ten of the best armadillo coloring pages below.

Hairy Armadillo, as the name suggests, have light brown hair covering their legs and undersides. They have hair sticking out from the spaces in their shell as well. These armadillos produce a strange sound whenever it perceives danger. Hairy Armadillos are native to Bolivia, Paraguay, Chile, and Argentina.
9. Armadillo Feeling Cold:
It looks like Grandpa armadillo is feeling cold. We believe that giving him some colors may warm him up a bit. Can you ask your kid to add some bright colors to grandma armadillo and his surroundings? Armadillos are very sensitive to cold and cannot tolerate even short periods of cold. It’s because they don’t have large fat reserves that can help insulate their bodies.
10. Three-Banded Armadillo:
Here’s a simple coloring image of a three-banded armadillo. A unique feature of this armadillo is that it rolls its body into tight balls whenever it sees its predator approaching. These armadillos do not dig their burrows. Instead, they occupy the abandoned anteater burrows. The three-banded armadillos are native to Brazil, Paraguay, and Bolivia and feed primarily on fruits and beetle larvae.
