Comments

Mulita (means little mule) is a shielded mammal, smallest species of the family of tatu (name of Brazilian origin, derived from a native language) and peludo (meaning hairy, since it has long and thick hairs on its body). They mainly can be distinguished by their size and the number of bands in the shield. Mulita's and tatu's diet is mainly vegetarian and insectivorous, while peludo is a scavenger. Builds long caves to live in and protect, and when in danger  can bend its body into a ball shape, so the shield covers all its parts.

Note the represented animal has 11 bands, that is not correct, as mulita has only 7 bands, tatu has 9 and peludo has only 6.
