- n. Plural form of mylodon.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The seas still swarmed with serpentine monsters of the saurian type, and the firmer lands were peopled by huge animals, mastodons, bears, giant tapirs, mylodons, deinotheriums, and a score of other species too strange for them to recognise by any Earthly likeness, which roamed in great herds through the vast twilit forests and over boundless plains covered with grey-blue vegetation.
The sloths are covered with coarse hair implanted in a thick hide, and some of the mylodons were even protected by numerous small bones embedded in the skin.
