Etymology[edit | edit source]

Its Japanese name may be a portmanteau of the English word "essence" (エサンス, esansu?) and possibly "ushi" from ushiro (後ろ?) which can refer to the behind or back.

Armadillos are New World placental mammals with a leathery armor shell. The word armadillo means "little armored one" in Spanish. About 10 extant genera and 20 extant species of armadillo have been described, some of which are distinguished by the number of bands on their armor. All species are native to the Americas, where they inhabit a variety of environments.
