Range Description

Dasypus septemcinctus ranges from the lower Amazon Basin of Brazil to the Gran Chaco of Bolivia, Paraguay, and northern Argentina. Its southern limit is uncertain due to morphological similarities to D. hybridus, D. yepesi and juvenile D. novemcinctus (Hamlett 1939, Abba et al. 2012, Smith 2012).
