Description (see definition): Ice-covered hill which rises to 1,760 m and projects 120 m above the surrounding ice sheet, situated on the Graham Land plateau 4 mi ESE of the head of Northeast Glacier and 8 mi NE of the head of Neny Fjord. First roughly surveyed by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE), 1934-37, and resurveyed in 1940 by sledging parties of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) on whose field charts the hill is labeled "Sawtooth." Named Armadillo Hill by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) following its 1946-47 survey, because when viewed from the NE the tumbled ice blocks on the summit and general shape of the hill resemble the side view of an armadillo.
