Abstract
Fossil vertebrates from the Doeden gravel pit, Yellowstone River Valley near Miles City, Montana, document a diverse fauna with ground sloths (Megalonyx jeffersonii and Paramylodon harlani), mammoths (Mammuthus columbi), mastadon (Mammut americanum), horse (Equus sp.), artiodactyls (Camelops sp., Bootherium sp., cervid and antilocaprid), and giant short-faced bear (Arctodus simus) (Hill 2001: Wilson 2003; Wilson and Hll 200, 2002). This paper discusses Doeden Local Fauna (DLF) sloth material.
