Dossier[edit | edit source]
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Among the largest mammals yet found on the island, the Megatherium is a slow-moving and formidable omnivore, roughly similar to a bear in appearance, but with a small head and heavy limbs that betray its sloth ancestry. While normally content to browse from tall trees or dig for roots and tubers, giant sloths are avid insectivores and will prey upon the island's giant arthropods when they can, cracking open exoskeletons with their hooked claws and extracting the meat with a long, muscular tongue. Smaller insects like the Titanomyrma are eaten wholesale.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Megatherium, see the relevant Wikipedia article
- The full-name of the Megatherium Formipavor means "Great beast that causes fear", a reference to its size and large frightening claws.
- Although described as omnivorous, the real animal was likely just a herbivore. This change in diet is based on the dietary habits of anteaters (which are related to sloths) and a controversial theory that Megatherium may have supplemented its diet with meat.
