The Glyptodon was one of the biggest ancient armadillos, being the size of a small car, had over 1,000 of these small armor plates on it’s body.  These herbivores may have been preyed upon by saber-toothed cats having lived in the Ice Ages, during the Pleistocene (between 2 million and 15,000 years ago).

The heavy armor scute we have here measures 1.72 by 1.47 inches and is pretty thick measuring ..78 inch.
