The armadillo is an upcoming mob and the winner of the Minecraft Live 2023Mob Vote, planned to be added in the 1.21 Update. It spawns in savannas. The armadillo can become startled and hide in its shell when the player confronts it; it can also drop scutes (not necessarily from dying), which would be used to craft Wolf Armor, offering them better protection during combat.[1]
