World Cup MascotWith so many soccer players banned from having sex during the World Cup, there's one dude who CAN'T BE RESTRAINED ... the armadillo mascot -- because Jack Hanna tells us, those things will mate ANYWHERE!! 

The animal guru tells TMZ Sports he's really excited that Brazil chose the Three-Banded Armadillo as the official mascot -- saying, "It is fitting that they picked [the armadillo] because they are endangered, but can also roll up into a secure ball to protect themselves from predators."

As for the armadillo sex drive -- Hanna says he knows from experience, those things have no shame! 

"I’ve taken armadillos on the 'Late Show with David Letterman' several times -- and would you believe that one time a pair even mated right on his desk!"

Armadillos -- they'll probably be having more sex than team Costa Rica and Mexico ... their coaches put the nix on nookie until the tourney is over. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
