I'm guessing it's a desert animal. A bird, rodent or reptile. Since you said mammal. I'll go with mouse.

Sorry. If you'll remember, I also said it was larger than an armadillo.

OK, here are some hints....
Will hiss, roar and whistle to communicate with one another
Has even-toed hooves
Is rather quiet and unassuming, but can kick the hell out of many other mammals if need be.
Have never been observed bathing
Have the highest blood pressure of all mammals
