Harlans Ground Sloth Skull Cast Replica Models measures 22x11x10 inches.Museum qualiity polyurathane cast of an original from the Late Pleistocene at Rancho La Brea. Produced under LACMNH license. Made in the USA. Paramylodon harlani.
Harlan’s ground sloth is alternately identified as Glossotherium harlani or Paramylodon harlani. Harlan’s ground sloth was a massive, powerfully built animal, with an enormous chest, extremely large forelimbs, stout hind limbs, strong claws, short neck and a robust tail. It also had an elongated head with blunt nose and flat grinding teeth. As with other sloths, the teeth had an outer layer of dentine, rather than enamel. Soft teeth wear down faster than hard teeth, and to compensate for this, their teeth continued to grown throughout their lifetime.
