Six-banded armadillos live in burrows, which they dig in tropical rainforests, savannahs, and prairies. When threatened, they will either curl up their legs into their carapace to protect themselves, or otherwise attempt to flee into their burrows. They are omnivores and consume things like fruits and small insects.
