Jefferson’s Ground Sloth – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Jefferson's Ground Sloth:

The Jefferson's Ground Sloth is an extinct mammal that was native to much of the North American continent. IT is believed to have lived from roughly 15,000 BP to 10,000 BCE. It is one of several species of giant sloth that roamed both North and South America, until a series of environmental pressures forced all but a few species into extinction. The name "Megalonyx" was suggested by Thomas Jefferson, who would eventually become the president of the US. Jefferson's Ground Sloth grew to be 8 to 10 feet long (2.5–3 meters) and had the widest range of the extinct giant sloths.
