Giant Ground Sloth

Exhibit on view: Ongoing

Visit one of the Cape Fear region’s oldest residents.

Cape Fear Museum’s Giant Ground Sloth skeleton is a replica of a creature that lived up to 1.5 million years ago in what became Wilmington. Our sloth’s bones are made from the remains of one found near Randall Parkway in 1991.

The original skeleton is housed in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, in Raleigh.
