Giant Ground Sloth

As tall as a Giraffe


As tall as a Giraffe and much heavier than a Grizzly Bear, the Giant Ground Sloth really is a giant! It is one of the largest mammals to ever walk the Earth. If you had visited South America during the Ice Age, you might have bumped into one of these guys. It's a shame you weren't there...


This is what the Giant Ground Sloth would have looked like when it was walking around. The skeleton in the Museum is one of our largest exhibits.
