Giant Ground Sloth

The Giant Ground Sloth soon found its way to North America after Noah’s Flood. When feeding, it would raise up on its back legs and use its powerful claws and arms to bend down the branches. This huge animal was a plant eater and is believed to be a gentle giant. Its large size would have scared away most predators.

The Giant Ground Sloth would have spent most of its time walking on all fours. It would have been the size of a bison.
