The megasloth is a giant, ancient sloth. Attacking them 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 is the recommended way to tame one.


It makes an excellent attack animal, but its taming difficulty means that you're generally better off trying to tame other animals, such as the elephant or rhinoceros.

One advantage of taming them is that they can be sheared for an incredible amount of wool. Although they can only be sheared every 50 days (the longest interval of any shearable animal), they give 400 wool per shearing, making them the most 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.
