Estimates have been made about the age of the order Xenarthra (which contains armadillos, anteaters, and sloths), one of the four major clades of placental mammals reported to be hosts for T. cruzi. All four of these clades were isolated in South America following its separation from the other continental land masses. Xenarthrans diverged over a period of about 65 million years, leaving more than 200 extinct genera and only 31 living species. The next placental mammal (T. , 2006). These clades appear following colonizations by rafting or island-hopping across the Atlantic Ocean from Africa by their respective most recent ancestor.

We have only a few samples of their housing because of lack of rain, which meant they did not need a waterproof shelter. Reconstruction of several of these shelters indicates that a series of slender wood poles were arranged in a circular pattern, and the top ends were gathered together in the form of a wooden tepee. The cover of the pole skeleton did not survive, but was most probably composed of intertwined reeds harvested from the brackish water at the river mouth. Such a dwelling would be ideal for nesting by the Chagas insect vector.
