A large monster the shape of an armadillo. It has thick armor for skin.

Giant armadillos are the giant animal variant of the common armadillo, found in savage tropical biomes. While the common critter is roughly cat-sized, these giants are over four times the size of a dwarf, though they are generally timid and will not fight back if attacked, preferring to curl up into a ball instead.

Giant armadillos can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets, possessing the default giant animal value. They provide a good amount of food and bones when butchered, on top of serving as a source of shells. Also like other giant animals, they are considered exotic mounts.

Some dwarves like giant armadillos for their thick, bony armor plates.
