Scientific name Megalonyx Jeffersoni, the generic name Megalonyx was proposed by future U.S. President Thomas Jefferson in 1797, based on fossil specimens of what later came to be called Megalonyx jeffersonii that he had received from western Virginia. Megalonyx is a Greek word for “large claw” Originally thought to be of a lion (lonyx). The Megalonyx Ground Sloth averaged 9.5 tall in height, and weighed up to 2200 pounds or 1000 kilograms. He lived during the Ice Age Period or Pleistocene age. Living from 10.3 Mya – 11,000 years ago. Like other ground sloths it had a blunt snout, massive jaw, and large peg-like teeth. The hind limbs were (flat-footed) and this, along with its stout tail, allowed it to rear up into a semi-erect position to feed on tree leaves. The forelimbs had highly developed claws that were probably used to strip leaves and tear off branches. All material was legally collected.
