Maurice the Megatherium
 
At the suggestion of my brother, I did a Megatherium, or Giant Ground Sloth. Now, technically, Megatherium's not a Tertiary, because he came later (in the Quaternary). But what the hey. He's a good addition to the group, and was the first bipedal mammal I did in the series.
 
Like so many of these guys (to me, anyhow), Megatherium was a cartoon character. He really was a living caricature. To me, Megatheriums always looked like a cross between a bear and a giant kangaroo. They lived in the Ice Age, alongside the Mammoths and Mastodons.
