Theodore Roosevelt Tour of the Museum: TR and the Giant Sloth

The restored Theodore Roosevelt Memorial is now open, and a self-guided tour—available as part of the Museum's Explorer app, or on our website—highlights exhibits around the Museum with a connection to TR, who was President from 1901 to 1909. In this post, the third in a series, we explore one of the tour's stops: the skin and dung of an extinct giant sloth, Mylodon darwinii, on display in the Hall of South American Peoples.
