Brazilian football bosses have chosen an endangered armadillo as the mascot for the 2014 World Cup.
World Cup winning striker Ronaldo unveiled the colourful animal on primetime television in Brazil, claiming it will "inspire many young football fans in Brazil and all over the world."
The mascot is based on the three-banded armadillo that is found in the north-east of the country. While the species is naturally light brown in colour, FIFA's version has yellow skin, green eyes and a blue shell.
The cuddly animal's name is the subject of an online poll. Fans can decide between Amijubi, Fuleco and Zuzeco.
The unnamed armadillo follows on from other memorable World Cup mascots including Naranjito the smiling orange from Spain '82 and Footix the football playing rooster from France '98.
