The nine-banded armadillo is a medium-sized mammal found in North, Central, and South America, making it the most widespread of the armadillos.  Its ancestors originated in South America, and remained there until the formation of the Isthmus of Panama allowed them to enter North America as part of the Great American Interchange. The nine-banded armadillo is a solitary, mainly nocturnal animal, found in many kinds of habitats, from mature and secondary rainforests to grassland and dry scrub. It is an insectivore, feeding chiefly on ants, termites, and other small invertebrates. The armadillo can jump 3–4 ft (91–122 cm) straight in the air if sufficiently frightened, making it a particular danger on roads.

 

The ulna has been used to make these earrings. Ulna in Latin means elbow. The ulna is distinctive as a long bone that has a rounded notch in the of one end. The other end usually has a somewhat pointed process with an articular surface on one side of the process for connecting to the carpars. In most animals the ulna goes on the outside of the front leg.

 

Earrings measure 4 1/2" including bead and finding.
