Cuban Rodent-like Sloth (Neocnus gliriformis)

 

The Cuban Rodent-like Sloth was described 1931 based on fossil bones that date to Late Pleistocene in age; the species, however, might well have survived into the Early Holocene.

Several forms that formerly had been described as distinct species, are now included here.
