Pink Fairies!

The pink fairy armadillo is the smallest of the armadillos, the family Dasypodidae. They are, like the Marsupial Mole, sand swimmers. They are able to move through the sand as if they are swimming through the water. Their torpedo shape and large claws mean that they can burrow through the deserts easily whilst the shield on their back, a feature notable of the Dasypodidae family, protects it from abrasion.It is also known as the pichicego, and is not data sufficient for a place in the IUCN Redlist.
