Uruguay 1-PESO URUGUAYO (KM135) Armadillo
There are five species of armadillo in Uruguay: Giant armadillo, Greater naked-tail armadillo, Six-banded armadillo, Nine-banded armadillo, and the Southern long-nosed armadillo. The last two are of the genus Dasypus, and I believe the fellow on this coin is the Southern long-nosed, D. hybridus.
They are one of the smaller armadillo species, and also have the smallest range, centred around Uruguay.
