The primary cause of this rapid expansion is explained simply by the species having few or no natural predators within the United States, little desire on the part of Americans to hunt or eat the armadillo, and the animals' high reproductive rate. The northern expansion of the armadillo is expected to continue until the species reaches as far north as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, and all points southward on the East Coast of the United States. Further northward and westward expansion will probably be limited by the armadillo's poor tolerance of harsh winters, due to its lack of insulating fat and its inability to hibernate (Hibernation). As of 2009, newspaper reports indicated the nine-banded armadillo seems to have expanded its range northward as far as Lincoln, Nebraska in the west, and Kentucky Dam and Evansville, Indiana in the east.
