Megalonix is a genus of prehistoric giant ground sloth that lived in North America during the Pleistocene epoch, around 2 million to 11,000 years ago. It was one of the largest ground sloths ever to have lived, with a body size estimated to be around 12 feet long and weighing up to 2 tons.
- Megalonix was a slow-moving, plant-eating mammal that lived in a variety of habitats, including forests, grasslands, and deserts.
- It had long, powerful arms and claws that were used to dig up roots and other vegetation.
- Fossils of Megalonix have been found in many locations across North America, providing important evidence for the distribution and evolution of this species.
- Like many other giant mammals, Megalonix went extinct around 11,000 years ago, and the exact cause of its extinction is unknown, although some theories suggest that climate change, overhunting by humans, or the combined effects of both may have played a role.
- Today, the remains of Megalonix provide important information about the ecology and evolution of giant ground sloths and the mammals that lived during the last Ice Age.

This is a high quality miniature 3D printed by Speira Miniatures in Sweden.
You can paint it as any normal miniature, no need to wash it beforehand. It is delivered unpainted.

Due to the inherit nature of 3D printing the miniatures might contain imperfections and could require additional cleanup where the support have been; use sand paper or green putty for example. Print layers will sometimes be visable.
3D resin is brittle, even if we use a mixture than makes it more flexible. However it cannot be compared with the normal plastic that is used for example Warhammer, Marx or Conte miniatures. Handle the 3D prints with care, a fall can break them. Glue info here.
