Zydeco is a yellow nine-banded armadillo with honey brown eyes and a lilac nose. He wears a gold crown, a light green leafy tail ornament, and a purple Mardi Gras necklace.
Tiana and Naveen were talking a walk through the bayou, reminiscing about the adventure they had there as frogs. Suddenly, they saw the Cajun armadillo scurry out of a bush and come right up to them. Unlike most armadillos who are very timid, Zydeco longed for a more exciting life. So, Tiana decided to take the little armadillo back with them to New Orleans. When Zydeco moves around, he looks like a little accordion which was how he got his name.
