Mega sloths are creatures found in Appalachia in 2102.
Where the mega sloths of Appalachia came from is unknown. It is noted, however, that
Isaac Garrahan owned several sloths at his family's estate before the Great War, and they are recorded to have escaped the enclosure on at least two occasions. 
The mega sloth is a three-toed sloth mutated by
radiation. Standing over nine feet tall, its body is covered with filthy, shaggy fur with clusters of mushrooms growing in the fur on its back (similar to how real-life sloths allow fungus to grow in their fur), as well as heavily calloused patches of skin and a mouth full of sharp teeth. The mega sloth is also highly aggressive and fast, at least by sloth standards.
Gameplay attributes Edit
Mega sloths can be found walking about, particularly throughout
the Mire. Though not immediately hostile, they may become aggressive if the player character gets too close. They will then use their claws to scratch and throw rocks at the player character, and they may even release fungal spores from the mushrooms growing on their backs. They are tough, quick-footed and can deal heavy damage to an unarmored target. Some can be found dangling from large trees, similar to Gulpers.

Behind the scenes Edit
The mega sloth may be a reference to prehistoric
giant ground sloths, some varieties of which could be the size of elephants. The first fossil evidence of these creatures was discovered in a cave in Greenbrier County, West Virginia.
Playstation 4 Xbox One When a mega sloth dies, it may freeze in place and not play its death animation. Its corpse can be clipped through, and looting it will be impossible.
One way to fix this is by fast traveling back and forth to the location of the sloth.
