Description

Megatherium (Giant Ground Sloth)


Megatherium, from the Greek mega ("great") and therion ("beast") was a genus of elephant-sized ground sloths endemic to South America. Often called the giant ground sloth, megatheriums were believed to have lived from the Early Pliocene through the end of the Pleistocene. The giant sloth's size was exceeded by only a few other land mammals, including mammoths and Paraceratherium.
