Glyptodons were giant cousins of the armadillo that lived in South and Central America during the last ice age. There were about the size of a small car and ate the tougher grasses and plants that grew on river banks and lake shores. They went extinct about 10,000 years ago. I read somewhere that they were likely hunted by humans and that people may have used their shells for storm shelters.
This image is part of my paleoart series.
A disclaimer about my paleoart: When it comes to paleoart, the images I create favor 'art' more than 'paleo'. While I try my best to depict animals as accurately as possible, I'm make no claim that they 100% scientifically accurate. The same goes for the environment I depict them in. I am primarily interested in creating aesthetically pleasing images and paintings. Scientific accuracy comes second behind artistic expression.
