Giant Sloths of many varieties lived in South America until ten thousand years ago, according to accepted knowledge. But cryptozoologists from Bernard Heuvelmans to David Oren find evidence for the Giant Sloth’s survival into modern times. There is reason to believe that Indians hunted them; “fresh” skin and dung were discovered in a cave in Argentina in 1895. No less a figure than the governor of Argentina, Ramon Lista, said he saw a creature that might match the description of a medium-sized, hairy Giant Sloth.
