The mascot of the 2014 World Cup is a yet to-be-named endangered armadillo.
Organizers made the announcement Sunday on a television show with the participation of former Brazil star Ronaldo. The mascot's name will be decided after input from the Brazilian public.
The three-banded armadillo, which is in danger of extinction, rolls up into the shape of a ball when threatened and is commonly found in northeastern Brazil.
The mascot carries the colors of the Brazilian flag. It is yellow, with green shorts and a blue shell and tail. It is dressed in a white shirt with the words "Brazil 2014" written on it.
