Eremotherium was a huge, bulky, slow-moving mammal that lived during the Pleistocene epoch in the United States. It went extinct about 11,000 years ago. The similar sized Megatherium genus was from South America.

Anatomy: Eremotherium had peg-like teeth, powerful jaws, and a thick, short tail. It had three hook-like claws on each foot. It was primarily a quadruped (walked on four legs). It was about the size of an elephant. It was roughly 20 feet (6 m) long and weighed about 3-4 tons.

Behavior: Eremotherium was an herbivore (a plant-eater). It ate leaves, shoots, roots, and fruit. It may have eaten leaves from the tops of trees while standing upright on its hind legs, using its tail to balance.
