MEET BRILLO OUR SIX-BANDED ARMADILLO!
Brillo is our newest animal ambassador at The Reptarium! Come visit the zoo to meet him and we will update the website and post on our social media and e-mail newsletter when we will offer private group encounters with Brillo in the near future!
Did you know? Six-Banded Armadillos are native to South America specifically east of the Andes mountains. They can be found in both dry and wet savannahs, but prefer drier regions. They love to burrow in grasslands. These Armadillos can live to almost 16 years in the wild and 19 years in captivity. They are also omnivorous, which means they eat both plants and other animals. Plant matter makes up about 90% of their diet. Six-Banded Armadillos also consume insects such as ants and termites and small vertebrates like frogs.
