But Megatherium was a sloth and I don't think It was that fast and smart to  attack with a strategy like that. i dont know,i heard megatherium could kill a animal in one kick,so i think the 2 cats would lose,although,the bear might be able to take it on. Megatheres displayed deeper jaws than other sloths. [30], In the south, the giant ground sloth flourished until about 10,500 radiocarbon years BP (8,500 BC). [A] Carbon isotope analysis has found that Megatherium has isotope values similar to other megafaunal herbivores such as mammoths, glyptodonts, and Macrauchenia, and significantly unlike omnivorous and carnivorous mammals, suggesting that Megatherium was an obligate herbivore. Although it was primarily a quadruped, its trackways show that it was capable of bipedal locomotion. Their ancestors migrated from North America to South America during the Great American Interchange, following the formation of the Isthmus of Panama during the late Pliocene. Each of these points are assigned to a random stat. The study also questioned the Holocene dates previously obtained for Pampas megafauna, suggesting that they were due to humic acid contamination. A typical representative: Arctotherium angustidens Gervais and Ameghino, 1880. Cyanic-Ember. [4] In his 1796 paper, Cuvier assigned the fossil the scientific name Megatherium americanum. The short-faced bear, is an extinct species of bear. The oldest records of M. americanum are from the latter half of the Middle Pleistocene, around 0.4 Ma.[25]. [27] The closely related genus Eremotherium (that has been classified occasionally as part of Megatherium)[28] lived in more tropical environments further north, and invaded temperate North America as part of the Great American Interchange. Temporal range: Pleistocene - Holocene of North America (~1.1 Ma – 10 000 years ago). Samo nekolicina sisara bili su veći od njega, među njima i mamuti i Paraceratherium. Megatherium is part of the sloth family Megatheriidae, which also includes the similarly elephantine Eremotherium, which was native to tropical South America and southern North America. Megatherium (/ m ɛ ɡ ə ˈ θ ɪər i ə m / meg-ə-THEER-ee-əm from the Greek mega [μέγας], meaning "great", and therion [θηρίον], "beast") is an extinct genus of ground sloths endemic to South America that lived from the Early Pliocene through the end of the Pleistocene. 8 points Utility Jun 15, 2017 Report. [15], Based on Bru's illustrations, comparative anatomist Georges Cuvier determined the relationships and appearance of Megatherium. Family: Ursidae. Of all the prehistoric mammals in this list, Indricotherium (which is also known as Paraceratherium and Baluchitherium) is the only one to have approached the size of the giant sauropod dinosaurs that preceded it by tens of millions of years. Big males of this species would have weighed more than 1,500 kg (3,307 lb) and standing at least 11 feet (3.4 meters) tall on the hind-limbs. 500 - 1000 chitin per mantis with the bug killer buff active. So, concluding, Megatherium wins if it manages to kill them of one by one, but if they attack all at once it's probably dead soon. Megatherium inhabited woodland and grassland environments of the lightly wooded areas of South America, with a Late Pleistocene range centred around the Pampas[26] where it was an endemic species, as recently as 10,000 years ago. If they all ganged up on Megatherium at the same time, they could bring it down. i agree.i have seen walking with beasts to. This suggests that the teeth were used for cutting, rather than grinding, and that hard fibrous food was not the primary dietary component. Their ancestors migrated from North America to South America during the Great American Interchange, following the formation of the Isthmus of Panama. From the 'Walking with Prehistoric Beasts',it will be the same as each one strong blow from the Megatherium will kill the big cats.Even the bear don't have much chance here.I would love to favor the bear but Megatherium is much heavier.If there was a 4 tonne bear,i would agree that it would beat the 5 tonne Megatherium. [29] However, noting that sloths lack the carnassials typical of predators and that traces of bone are absent from the many preserved deposits of sloth dung, Paul Martin has described this proposal as "fanciful". [9], According to one study, Megatherium was probably mostly hairless (like modern elephants) due to its large size giving it a small surface-area-to-volume ratio, making it susceptible to overheating. Its large size enabled it to feed at heights unreachable by other contemporary herbivores. ;) But only when they kill her minions. The oldest (and smallest) species of Megatherium is M. altiplanicum of Pliocene Bolivia. Megatherium (meaning \"Great Beast\") was a genus of rhino-sized ground sloths endemic to North America that lived from the Pleistocene existing for approximately 5.3 million years. Upload stories, poems, character descriptions & more. They suggest that to add nutrients to its diet, Megatherium may have taken over the kills of Smilodon. [14], The species Megatherium (Pseudomegatherium) tarijense, appears to be a junior synonym of M. americanum, and merely a small individual. I see this thread is likely fairer than previous Megalania vs Grizzly thread. Megatherium is one among the Pleistocene megafauna, which included giant cats, lizards, bears, wolves, and even kangaroos.These megafauna lived all over the world, although Megatherium's range was limited to the Americas. The giant ground sloth was a herbivore, feeding on leaves such as yuccas, agaves, and grasses. Sameer Prehistorica / Deviant Art. Arctotherium is an extinct genus of South American short-faced bears within Ursidae of the late Pliocene through the end of the Pleistocene. Megatherium is a slow, gentle creature that will not attack any survivor and only shows aggression to insects or when attacked. 3 on 1 battle, It's an handicap for Megatherium. [citation needed] While it fed chiefly on terrestrial plants, it could also stand on its hind legs, using its tail as a balancing tripod, and reach for upper growth vegetation. M. tarijense has been regarded as a medium-sized Megatherium species, larger than M. altiplanicum, but smaller than M. americanum. Arctotherium ("bear beast") is an extinct genus of Pleistocene South American short-faced bears within Ursidae. It roamed from the Tarija Basin in Bolivia to Yantac in Peru. It was reassembled by museum employee Juan Bautista Bru, who also drew the skeleton and some individual bones. #1. [31] There are a few late dates of around 8,000 BP and one of 7,000 BP[32] for Megatherium remains, but the most recent date viewed as credible is about 10,000 BP. Its size was exceeded by only a few other land mammals, including mammals like the Indricotherium and some elephantk Megatherium americanum is one of the largest land mammals known to have existed, weighing up to 4 t (4.4 short tons)[6] and measuring up to 6 m (20 ft) in length from head to tail. On ark mobile the megatherium would not fit into any of the caves. But the cats could die slapped by Megatherium If they try to attack first from the front but the bear would be more able to kill the Sloth. One of the four major eutherian radiations, this superorder evolved in isolation in South America while it was an island continent during the Paleogene and Neogene. The holotype specimen was then shipped to Spain the following year wherein it caught the attention of the paleontologist Georges Cuvier, who was the first to determine, by means of comparative anatomy, that Megatherium was a sloth. I get that they get a buff but I don't feel like it should make a 15 Megatherium be able to kill a 200 carno. [3] It is best known for the elephant-sized type species M. americanum, sometimes called the giant ground sloth, or the megathere, native to the Pampas through southern Bolivia during the Pleistocene. The giant ground sloth lived mostly in groups, but it may have lived singly in caves. Only a few other land mammals equaled or exceeded M. americanum in size, such as large proboscideans (e.g., elephants) and the giant rhinoceros Paraceratherium. Welcome to our eBay Store.

The family to which Megatherium belongs, Megatheriidae, is related within superfamily Megatheroidea to the extinct families Nothrotheriidae and Megalonychidae, and to living three-toed sloths of family Bradypodidae, as deduced recently from collagen[22] and mitochondrial DNA[23] sequences obtained from subfossil bones. It probably had mainly a browsing diet in open habitats, but also it probably fed on other moderate to soft tough food. Order: Carnivora. Most cite the appearance of an expanding population of human hunters as the cause of its extinction. Rising on its powerful hind legs and using its tail to form a tripod, Megatherium could support its massive body weight while using the curved claws on its long forelegs to pull down branches with the choicest leaves.

Various other smaller species belonging to the subgenus Pseudomegatherium are known from the Andes. Living in the last land masses to be colonized by human settlers, Megatherium would have been able to avoid hunting parties. Megatherium species were members of the abundant Pleistocene megafauna, large mammals that lived during the Pleistocene epoch. Since the original discovery, numerous other fossil Megatherium skeletons have been discovered across South America, in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia (Quipile, Cundinamarca),[16][17] Guyana, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. [24], The rhinoceros-sized Promegatherium of the Miocene is suggested to be the ancestor of Megatherium. Arctotherium is an extinct genus of South American short-faced bears within Ursidae of the Pleistocene. [clarification needed][6], Megatherium is divided into 2 subgenera, Megatherium and Pseudomegatherium. Megatherium je bio jedna od najvećih poznatih vrsta sisavaca, sa težinom od 4 tone i dužinom od glave do repa od 6 m. Najveći je poznati kopneni ljenivac, jednake veličine kao i današnji slonovi, a u njegovo vrijeme po veličini bi ga pretekle samo neke vrste mamuta.Iako je pretežno bio četveronožan, otisci njegovih stopala pokazuju da je mogao zauzeti dvonožnu pozu. While this alone would not likely have caused its extinction, it has been cited as a possible contributing factor. The sloth's stomach was able to digest coarse and fibrous food. This sloth, like a modern anteater, walked on the sides of its feet because its claws prevented it from putting them flat on the ground.

Their teeth in side view show interlocking V-shaped biting surfaces, though they are nearly square in cross-section and exhibit bilophodonty. During the Pliocene, the Central American Isthmus formed, causing the Great American Interchange, and a mass extinction of much of the indigenous South American megafauna. A recent morpho-functional analysis[6] indicates that M. americanum was adapted for strong vertical biting. Dec. 8, 2020. [12] In Megatherium, the stylohyal and epihyal bones (parts of the hyoid bone which supports the tongue and is located in the throat) were fused together, and the apparatus lies farther upwards the throat, which, together with the elongated, steeply inclined mandibular symphysis, indicates a relatively shorter geniohyoid muscle and thus more limited capacity for tongue protrusion. < > Showing 1-6 of 6 comments . [6], Like other sloths, Megatherium lacked the enamel, deciduous dentition, and dental cusp patterns of other mammals. Megatherium (od grč.mega [μέγας] - "velika" i therion [θηρίον] "zvijer") bio je rod kopnenih ljenivaca veličine slona koji su od kasnog pliocena do kraja pleistocena bili endemični za Centralnu i Južnu Ameriku. It would possibly concentrate on thebear first, as it is the biggest and that makes it the biggest threat. Megatherium was adapted to temperate, arid or semiarid open habitats. [13] Analysis of wear and the biomechanics of the chewing muscles suggests that they chewed vertically. [33] The use of bioclimatic envelope modeling indicates that the area of suitable habitat for Megatherium had shrunk and become fragmented by the mid-Holocene. Seems excessive. Indricotherium, compared to a human being and an elephant. One on one megatherium wins easy, but all three maybe the predators, not 100% sure though.

I understand they get a buff from the bugs but me and my carno ended up running away because the carno was to the point of concern. Fossils of Megatherium and other western megafauna proved popular with the Georgian era public until the discovery of the dinosaurs some decades later. [11] Megatherium also possessed the narrowest muzzle of all ground sloths from the Pleistocene, possibly meaning it was a very selective eater, able to carefully pick and choose which leaves and twigs to consume. Based on the estimated strength and mechanical advantage of its biceps, it has been proposed that Megatherium could have overturned adult glyptodonts (large, armored xenarthrans, related to armadillos) as a means of scavenging or hunting these animals.

Cuvier determined that Megatherium was a sloth, and at first believed that it used its large claws for climbing trees, like modern sloths, although he later changed his hypothesis to support a subterranean lifestyle, with the claws used to dig tunnels.[4]. [10], Megatherium had a narrow, cone-shaped mouth and prehensile lips that were probably used to select particular plants and fruits. The sloth used its simple teeth to grind down food before swallowing it, and its highly developed cheek muscles helped in this process. [19] Species of Megatherium became larger over time, with the largest species, M. americanum of the Late Pleistocene, reaching the size of an African elephant.

The largest known terrestrial mammalian carnivoran of all time was (possibly) the South American short-faced bear (Arctotherium) source 1 source 2. [1] It was very similar to Promegatherium, and was also about the size of a rhinoceros. The researchers say this would have enabled M. americanum to use its claws like daggers. But the cats could die slapped by Megatherium If they try to attack first from the front but the bear would be more able to kill the Sloth. South American short-faced bear (Arctotherium Burmeister, 1879).

The extinction coincides with the settlement of the Americas, and a kill site where a M. americanum was slaughtered and butchered is known, suggesting that hunting could have caused its extinction.[5]. Blog. Megatherium, largest of the ground sloths, an extinct group of mammals belonging to a group containing sloths, anteaters, glyptodonts, and armadillos that underwent a highly successful evolutionary radiation in South America in the Cenozoic Era (beginning 65.5 million years ago). The year is 9,000 B.C. Jul 30, 2017 @ 12:13pm Yes. [19], The species Megatherium filholi Moreno, 1888 of the Pampas, previously thought to be a junior synonym of M. americanum representing juvenile individuals, was suggested to be a distinct valid species in 2019. It was the largest mammal carnivore within the last 20,000 years. [14] These species are considerably smaller than M. americanum, and are considered to belong to a separate subgenus, Pseudomegatherium. I found something interesting, Soibelzon and Tarantini (2009) have measurements of Arctotherium skulls, condylobasal and "anterior margin of orbit to condyles" length, it is the former that I used to estimate the proportional size of the skull of Arctotherium angustidens when compared to Arctodus simus but checking some photographs in Figueridio and Soibelzon (2009) I think I'll have to … If These was real both Smilodon and the american lion would be in prides and would easily defeat megatherium. 261 followers megatherium (24458 megatherium's feedback score is 24458) 100.0% megatherium has 100% Positive Feedback.
