The Armadillo is a species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.


The armadillo is a short, stout mammal with strong bands of body armour and a scaly tail. Despite their short legs, armadillos move quite quickly, making them difficult to catch.

They are endemic to the south-western part of the map, generally in New Austin as the warm, desert-like environments allow these creatures to thrive.




  • "Armadillo" is Spanish for "little armored one".
  • The Desperado outfit needs a Perfect Armadillo Skin to be completed. As their habitats are only found in the New Austin deserts, this outfit can only be acquired after the game's epilogue. However, there are some exploits that allow for the outfit to be obtained earlier.
