But it is now known that they formed the covering of a gigantic animal of the Armadillo kind, which will be presently noticed. The genus Megalonyx (or animal with a large claw) is founded on some remains which have been discovered in North and South America; from the size and form of the claw, it was at first supposed to be that of a carnivorous animal; but Cuvier rectified the error, and referred it to this group.
