A while ago I wrote a post about how cool it would be if we all planted a few more fruit trees and shared the wealth that resulted. Last week a friend dropped by with these:Megatherium americanum.
This is a harvard specimen of a related sloth Lestodon armatus. As big as it is - the idea of swallowing and passing that huge hard avocado stone is somewhat eyewatering.
Edited to correct the sloth id.
