Caribbean Ground Sloth?

Another Taino artifact is this small "Bear" representation. Since there are supposed to be no bears in the area, the next suggestion is that it could possibly represent a surviving ground sloth. The Tainos lived in Cuba and Cuba is one place the bear-sized Groundsloths are alleged to have survived. Also it does seem the paws are meant to show some sizeable hooked claws, although that part may not seem readily apparent at first.
