How about a lemur? They have masked varieties (and they are cute). Raccoon also comes to mind...

There is no such critter. There are naked-tailed, long-nosed,
and hairy Armadillos but no Masked Armadillo. There is even a
Pink Fairy Armadillo (one of the rarer species of Armadillo).
What most people think of when you say Armadillo is the nine-
banded Armadillo which is Texas' small state animal which has
the widest range.
GnuPG already has an icon / emblem which you can see on the
GnuPG page which is a padlock with a wing on it. I was one
of those privileged to be able to vote on the cempeting
designs. I am sorry you missed out.
But I think the standard GNU mascot applies not only to
GnuPG but to all of the GNU projects such as gcc, g++, EMACS,
Until Werner, Richard Stallman and the other GNU people announce
a competition for a GnuPG mascot or say otherwise, the GNU is the
official GnuPG mascot.
