The Mapinguari, is a legendary beast resembling a six-feet tall ground sloth-like creature with red fur living in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil and Bolivia. According to Brazilian stories, the Mapinguari was once an Amazonian shaman who discovered the key to immortality thousands of years ago. He angered the gods and was severely punished as to his discovery, which forced him to be transformed into a wandering beast for the rest of his life. Most cryptozoologists speculate that the Mapinguari is either a Megatherium, a large giant ground sloth from the Ice Age that lived in the area, or another species of Giant Sloth. The creature also supposedly has a horrid odor, but not as bad as something like the Skunk Ape’s. It is said to sometimes be a humanoid creature with a mouth in the middle of its stomach. It is sometimes said to have one eye, long claws, caiman skin, backward feet and a second mouth on its belly.
