Glossotherium (literally "Tongue Beast") was a genus of ground sloth. It had a length of about 13 feet (4 m.) snout to tail-tip, and could potentially assume a slight bipedal stance. Fossils of this animal have been found in South America. Due to its size and strength, Glossotherium would have had few natural enemies. It is believed to have died out sometime during the Pleistocene (2 million years ago). ~Wikipedia
What a beautiful beast the tongue beast must have been. I saw a sloth recently, passing only a foot or so above my head, and they are entrancing creatures. A ground-sloth, perhaps not so much, but still, I am sad about the demise of glossotherium.
