the article says extremely endangered, and the box says lower risk. what's the deal? pauli 02:36, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
the armadillo pictured is not a giant armadillo. Giant Armadillos have more bands on their shell and a lighter coloring around the edge. i suggest changing the picture to an accurate one. thank you.
- The claws are too small, too, I think. Might it have been an Euphractus? See commons:Image:Chubut-PeninsulaValdes-Armadillo-TatuCarreta-P2230729b.jpg. Ucucha (talk) 14:35, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
I think that picture you have of the hunter with the dead giant armadillo is the crudest and most sickest thing ever. your screwed up man they are endangered
- What are you referring to? There are no hunting pics on this page. Ucucha (talk) 14:35, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
I believe he/she is refering to the image on one of the linked pages. Content which is not part of this wiki entry other than a link really. 220.127.116.11 21:44, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
because I'm the best Yupp
commons:Image:Chubut-PeninsulaValdes-Armadillo-TatuCarreta-P2230729b.jpg This image does not show a giant armadillo (named Tatú Carreta in Argentina), but a hairy armadillo (Zaedyus pichiy), common in Península Valdés.

On the general Armadillo page, it says Giant Armadillos grow up to 5 feet and can weigh 150 lbs. This page says 35 inches and 71 lbs. I get the impression that the general Armadillo page is correct but I can't be sure; I'm not armadillo expert. Can anyone clear up the discrepancy? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:19, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
- Oh, I just noted the same at Talk:Armadillo#Articles_are_inconsistent. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:29, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
No juveniles in the field?
Little is currently known about this species' reproductive biology, and no juveniles have ever been discovered in the field. Outdated? A picture can be found here: http://giantarmadillo.org.br/en/photo-gallery/ See also the news links on that page! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:44, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
