Armored and Cute
Armadillos are cute little armored animals that can have four babies at a time, always all the same sex. The fertilized cell split into quarters, resulting in four identical armadillos. Although they have short legs, they can move quite quickly, and have the ability to remain underwater for as long as six minutes. Because of the density of its armor, an armadillo will sink in water unless it inflates its stomach and intestines with air, which often doubles its size and allows it to swim across narrow bodies of water. Armadillos also get an average of 18.5 hours of sleep per day.
