Armadillo Minecraft : Everything you need to know about this creature

The armadillo is a passive creature that appears in savannahs. It is the only source of armadillo scutes, which are released when the player uses a brush on them.


When wounded, the armadillo flees for a short time. An armadillo may be surprised and hide in its shell when confronted by sprinting players, players on a mount or in a vehicle, and undead creatures.

When an armadillo is rolled up, it doesn’t walk, can’t eat and isn’t tempted by food. The armadillo won’t roll up if it’s running, in the water, in the air or being guided. Armadillos continue to search for threats, and if no threat is detected for 3 seconds, they uncoil. It also unwinds instantly if it takes damage, comes into contact with water or is held on a leash.
