The pink fairy armadillo, indigenous to central Argentina, is the smallest armadillo in the world at 3.5-4.5 inches in length (90-115 mm) and around 4.2 ounces (120 g) in weight. In contrast, the nine-banded armadillo, more familiar to U.S. readers since it is found throughout North, Central, and South America, is 15-23 inches (38-58 cm) in length (not including the tail) and generally 5.5-14.3 pounds (2.5-6.5 kg) in weight.
