This Eremotherium eomigrans skull is from an individual that was about the size of a bull elephant. Most of the edentates are insectivores; living tree sloths are herbivores. The giant ground sloth, like its living relatives appears to have been a browser, eating leaves, tender shoots, or other soft vegetation. Their large teeth did not have an enamel coating and were ever-growing. The great size of this giant prehistoric mammal combined with its ability to sit upright indicates that, much like the giraffe today, it probably dined on high vegetation. The giant ground sloth went extinct by the end of the Pleistocene.
Available as an unpainted, unmounted cast suitable for some research or reference purposes. Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.
