A Giant Megatherium Soft Toy is in Stock at Everything Dinosaur

Everything Dinosaur has added a beautiful, very cuddly Megatherium soft toy to its range of prehistoric animal soft toys.  Megatherium, otherwise known as the giant ground sloth, was a member of the Order Xenarthra, which includes extant mammals such as armadillos, tree sloths and anteaters.  These giant browsers ranged across the Americas, from Argentina in the south to as far north as the mid United States.  Weighing as much as a White Rhinoceros and standing some four metres or more in height (when on their hind legs), these animals were most probably avoided by Stone Age hunters.

Evolved in South America

These large mammals originally evolved in South America, but spread into North America when the American land bridge was formed.  Numerous fossils have been discovered including preserved hair, fossilised footprints and fossil dung (coprolite).  Fossils of giant ground sloths were studied by Charles Darwin as part of his scientific research whilst voyaging on the Beagle in the 1830’s, although the first recorded study of Megatherium fossils took place much earlier (1789).

Giant Megatherium Soft Toy

Standing a fraction under thirty centimetres tall and measuring around twenty-five centimetres in length, this really is a super-sized, giant ground sloth soft toy.  His fur is very soft and our Megatherium is sponge washable so he (or she), can accompany your young palaeontologist on their fossil finding adventures.  To clean this soft toy giant ground sloth, simply wipe his fur with a damp cloth or sponge, using some mild soap and when it is dry, simply brush gently to restore the pile of the fur.  Like the majority of the soft toys supplied by Everything Dinosaur, the Megatherium is suitable for very young children, from nought years and upwards.
