Most armadillos lead a solitary lifestyle preferring to be alone and only coming together during the breeding season. However, some species of armadillos have been known to travel in small groups, usually up to three armadillos. The adult armadillos come together to breed and may also spend time together courting before mating. An armadillo’s mating season lasts from October to January. Female armadillos are the sole caregiver of their young. The young armadillos mature quickly, being weaned at 10 weeks and reaching sexual maturity and 9-12 months. Young armadillos also usually venture away from their mother after only a few months time.
