article description
In this article, I analyzed the case of the discovery of the megatherium (the first extinct animal reconstructed) from an abductive perspective, paying attention to the process of hypothesis generation and selection of some of the agents involved in this unique event. The analysis shows the importance of certain methodological issues related to scientific rigor in order to propose plausible hypotheses.
