After hours of travelling on the HMS Beagle we have finally arrived in Mercedes, Uruguay. I have come here to investigate some giant bones that I have heard about from people at a farmhouse in Sandis.

I had gone to investigate the giant bones accompanied by my host, Captain Fitz-Roy. The bone skull was equal in size to a hippopotamus skull and had curved teeth. Mr. Owen has called the animal a Toxodon. During this I found a head of a species that was like a giant sloth called Mylodon and I also found some of the remains of a giant armadillo type creature.

I have found more armadillo species and it is most interesting that there is a much larger armadillo like creature that is covered in a coat of mail.

I am now off to my next destination to find new species.
