Not to be confused with the Pet Golden Armadillo.

The Pet Armadillo is a members-only land pet.


The overall shape of the Pet Armadillo is that of a large rounded armored back, a small curled tail, and an angular head with a small pointy nose and mouth. This pet can appear in a large variety of colors, but the palette is much more neutral with earth tones rather than the bright colors available to most other pets.

The eyes available are similar to those found for other pets and include normal, angry, happy, squinting, rounded, and normal with eye-lashes. The tail options include small, thick, long, and feathered. The ear options consist of tall, pointy, rounded, and curved. The body pattern offers four options with a wide range of differences. The default pattern consists of a plain body with two dark lines running up the side. The plate-armor pattern provides long feet and a series of armor plated that run from the tip of the nose to the back of the body. The fur pattern provides zigzagging stripes that resemble thick fur. The scale pattern provides dark, scale-like armor that covers the top and sides of both the head and the body.


Action Description
It hops high into the air and curls into a ball midair before landing and rolling side to side. If the pet has the minecart accessory, it will simply hop up and down inside the cart. If the pet has the tank accessory, the tank will shoot out a cloud of colored smoke and confetti.
The Armadillo sits still, haunches are bent and legs are pointing forward. The body is also slightly bent.
The Armadillo will jump into the air curling into a ball midair before landing on all fours on it's rear end.
The Armadillo will stand onto it's hind legs, switch it's feet like it's walking and then begin to swing their head back and forth headbutting into the air.
The Armadillo will close it's eyes and tuck it's legs in. Like any other sleeping pet, Z's can be seen.
The Armadillo will hop up and down, however the airtime is fairly short.


These accessories can be found at the Pet Stop. The rare accessories can only be found in the Pets Only Party and the Play-As-Your-Pet Party.
