Mapinguari has a dark brown coat that covers its entire body. Despite the great similarity to a gorilla, Mapinguari is considered an ancestor of the sloth. Its claws are the biggest sign of this, being quite wide and its main weapon of attack. It only has only one eye, big and red, that helps to see at night. Its mouth is disproportionate to its size, being located below the chest. For the indigenous people, it is not just a ferocious animal, but a descendant of Equilibrium and, as dangerous as it may be, one of the protectors of the forest.
