Caption: Doedicurus mammals. Artwork of prehistoric glyptodonts of the genus Doedicurus grazing on grassy plains 25,000 years ago in what is today South America. In the background is a giant ground sloth of the genus Eremotherium. With a turtle-like shell 1.5 metres tall and weighing over two tons, Doedicurus was the largest known glyptodontid, an extinct family of heavily-armoured herbivores related to modern armadillos. Doedicurus carried a large spiked tail that could have helped protect it from large predators and other Doedicurus. Eremotherium was a megatheriid that grew to 6 metres long and weighed up to three tons.
