Parapropalaehoplophorus septentrionalis was a relatively small (compared to, say, Glyptodon) species of glyptodont, extinct relatives of the modern armadillo. The mammal, identified in 2007 from the fossilized remains of a specimen found in 2004, weighed approximately 200 pounds and had a shell covered by tiny circular bumps. It lumbered around northern Chile in an area now dominated by the Andes mountain range, some 18 million years ago.
