Unfortunately, the conservation status for pink fairy armadillo is still uncertain, and it is listed as Data Deficient by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The decline in population for this species has generally been attributed to farming activities and predators including domestic dogs and cats. Pink fairy armadillos are found less commonly than they were a few decades ago.
Pink Fairy armadillos are a species of armadillo that is currently endangered. They are from Argentina, and are being killed due to a loss of habitat and wild dogs. Currently, there is nothing that can be done beyond the legislation that is already in place to protect them. Additionally, many of them are being placed on protected land in Argentina.
Pink skin: many breeds of domestic pig, the hair is white but often so sparse the pink skin shows through. Some albino snake color phases result in a pink animal. Sphinx cats that are genetically white are pink because they have no hair. Fairy armadillos have pink 'armor'. There are a few species of fish that are predominantly pink. The pink anthias comes to mind.
