Megasloth

Megasloth

A giant, solitary herbivore with two giant claws for warding off threats. Long extinct after being wiped out by the natives of Earth's American continent, the megasloth was later brought back using advanced cloning and artificial gestators. Its thick hide is exceptionally strong and insulating, and makes a great leather for cold-weather clothing. It is peaceful if left alone, but will shred anyone who disturbs it with its giant claws.

The megasloth is a giant, ancient sloth. If tamed, it produces Megasloth wool at a rate of 200 every 20 days.

Although being a "sloth", it actually has a slightly faster movement speed than a human. Attacking one is quite dangerous and taming one will require both high skill and considerable risk. It is the second hardest animal after the Thrumbo to tame, and with most skill levels, the manhunter chance is higher than the taming chance. Wounding then saving the megasloth, or waiting for an inspiration is the recommended way to tame one.

Megasloths can be found in temperate forests, temperate swamps, arid shrublands, boreal forests, cold bogs, tundra, and ice sheets.

Analysis

If it can be tamed, it makes an excellent attack or damage soak animal. Compared to other bulky attack animals, it is joint second in health and second highest in DPS, despite only eating as much as a human colonist.

One advantage of taming them is that they can be sheared for an incredible amount of wool. Although they can only be sheared every 20 days (the longest interval of any shearable animal), they give 200 wool per shearing, making them the most work efficient source of wool in the game. This feature can be exploited to either make lots of excellent cold-resistant clothing, or lots of silver.

*As of version 1.1.2610, all animals can be tamed. The percentage of likelihood of success depends on factors such as the Animals Wildness Percentage, Pawn Handling Skill, and others. More information can be found on the animals page.
