- Country reported: Ecuador
The Ecuadorean ground sloth was a cryptid ground sloth reported from Ecuador once in the 1980's.[Expansion needed] It was described as 10 feet long with shaggy hair and a horselike snout, and walked on both two legs and four. George Eberhart to suggests it may have been a surviving Megatherium, instead of the usual Mylodon or megalonychid, presumably due to its size. It is not the only ground sloth-like animal reported from Ecuaodor.
