This medium-sized ground sloth could grow to more than twice the size of a polar bear. It appeared in North America 10 million years ago and only went extinct 11,000 before present. Its species name is a tribute to President Thomas Jefferson, who coined the name Megalonyx which means “Large Claw" in 1797.
