Caption: Prehistoric ground sloth. Illustration of a Mylodont ground sloth feeding. This animal could reach the size of a small elephant, and inhabited the Neotropics (South America). It probably evolved during the Eocene Age (65 to 38 million years ago) but is thought to have become extinct as recently as the Holocene Period 12,000 years ago. It was, therefore, contemporary with early man. The Mylodont ground sloth was herbivorous, plump and clumsy.
