The Giant Sloth was an enormous creature that lived during the ice age and disappeared at the end of the Pleistocene period. The largest of these beasts could stand on their hind legs and strip the leaves off trees over 20' high! Although Giants Sloths primarily existed on a vegetarian diet, there have been suggestions that they supplemented their food by hunting and eating giant armadillos.
