the AOL story is much more fanciful that what i just seen at the NYT
it seems the Mapinguary (pronounced; ma-ping-wahr-EE)
is believed to be a giant slothlike creature...
probably similar to the long vanished 'Megatherium'
see link for a drawing; www.nytimes.com...
(i have an account, perhaps you will too)
Be careful, lore has it that it's stare can make one dizzy & turn night into day
And it's fur is so matted & full of muck, the creature is impervious to bullets & arrows
