Megatheriums
Only appearance: Savage Empire

The Megatherium is a huge but peaceful vegetarian animal in the valley of Eodon. If left alone, it is normally not aggressive. Should the unwise adventurer get the idea to attack it, however, the Megatherium can be an extremely strong and durable opponent.

Lore[edit]

Megatherium. This ancestor of the modern tree sloths was a ground sloth the size of some modern elephants. Walking about on four legs, it was some 20 feet long and 6 feet at the shoulder, and weighed on the order of three tons. Its descendant in the Valley of Eodon is much the same, and behaves much like its tree - sloth relatives: Vegetarian, slow - moving, mostly peaceful. It is not, however, an easy kill for natives or dinosaurs, being capable of fighting savagely for its life.
