ABOUT

This massive beast is covered in thick, shaggy fur. Its forelegs end in huge sickle-like claws, and it gives off an absolutely putrid reek.

The abominable sloth is a territorial and aggressive variety of giant ground sloth. It is an especially large and powerful animal, only a little smaller than a mammoth; the typical abominable sloth weighs 4 to 5 tons, and stands more than 15 feet tall when rearing up on its hind legs.

The abominable sloth is noted for its overpowering musk, which smells like putrid meat. This foul stench often carries for hundreds of yards with the wind, providing plenty of warning that the beast is nearby—it is difficult indeed to be surprised by this creature. It can be a fierce opponent when angered, and is more than capable of killing a human with a single blow of its claws. The jungle tribes consider the abominable sloth too dangerous (and its flesh too rank) to hunt, and generally avoid the beast.
