I've never understood why people assume this. "Megatherians" = "Big 
animals". Why think of Abaia, Erebus et al as "animals"? 

On the other hand, I suppose you could think of the "Group of 17" 
as composed of 17 individuals each under the control of a different 
"megatherian". But to me it's a red herring.
