3. The Giant Armadillo

The Glyptodon was one of the oddest looking giant animals to succeed the dinosaurs. It was about the size (and shape) of a VW Beatle, and it boasted a large carapace that also made it look like one. Despite its imposing stature, this giant armadillo was eventually hunted to extinction by early South American settlers.
