4m = 13ft 131⁄64in (too low an estimate)
4 tonnes =8818.489904151833 (too low an estimate)
Megatherium is estimated to be over 20 feet, this one maybe more.
The size of this sloth was comparable and maybe slightly larger than T-rex.

Megatherium (from the Greek mega [μέγας], meaning “great”, and therion [θηρίον], “beast”) was a genus of elephant-sized ground sloths. Its large size enabled it to feed at heights unreachable by other contemporary herbivores.
See a megatherium claw at the Greater Ancestors World Museum in Jacksonville Florida as well as evidence for many other greater ancestors of various animals. The collection is growing and purchases increase our inventory, as the profits go right back into the mueum. See this giant sloth, as well as the giant armodillo.
