CAVE DWELLER: At 200 meters long, Milodon is the largest cave in Cueva del Milodón Natural Monument, which flanks the Cerro Benitez Mountains in Patagonia, Chile. It gets its name from the 1895 discovery of skin and bones of a giant ground sloth called Mylodon darwini, a species that became extinct nearly 15,000 years ago.
