Megasloth

Megasloth

A giant, solitary herbivore with two giant claws for warding off threats. Long extinct after being wiped out by the natives of Earth's American continent, the megasloth was later brought back using advanced cloning and artificial gestators. Its thick hide is exceptionally strong and insulating, and makes a great leather for cold-weather clothing. It is peaceful if left alone, but will shred anyone who disturbs it with its giant claws.

Technical


The megasloth is a giant, ancient sloth. Attacking them is quite dangerous and taming one will require both high skill and considerable risk. It is the second hardest animal after the Thrumbo to tame, and with most skill levels, the manhunter chance is higher than the taming chance. Wounding then saving the megasloth is the recommended way to tame one.

It makes an excellent attack animal, but its taming difficulty means that you're generally better off trying to tame other animals, such as the elephant or rhinoceros.

One advantage of taming them is that they can be sheared for an incredible amount of wool. Although they can only be sheared every 50 days (the longest interval of any shearable animal), they give 400 wool per shearing, making them the most time efficient source of wool in the game. This feature can be exploited to either make lots of excellent cold-resistant clothing, or lots of silver.
