Different name, same creature and more detail. The giant sloth shows up again. Here is what we learned this time.
The hind legs are super powerful and tells us that from its gait and even its speed that these legs can grasp a tree or large limb and leverage the upper body into another tree or limb. All this allows a fast run as well, sufficient to run down a deer or bear. some of this is unexpected but understandable.
More surprising is that the upper arms do not lend themselves to an easy fight with a human. I suspect that they grasp with the upper body and then rip the victim open with their lower limbs. In the case mentioned the victim broke away fast enough.
There are now well over fifty separate reports in this blog and likely a couple of hundred out there to be found once everyone understands that this is the Giant Sloth. Confusion has hidden this creature that is surely the inspiration for the werewolf.
