Fun and Not So Fun Facts About Sloths
Sloths are fascinating creatures who depend on rainforests to survive. Unfortunately, several species of sloth are listed as threatened species and the pygmy three-toed sloth is critically endangered and at great risk for extinction.
- Sloths naturally live in the tropical rainforests of Central and South America.
- There are 2 groups of sloths: 2 toed and 3 toed.
- Sloths eat mostly leaves, sap and fruits.
- Everything about a sloth is slow, from moving, feeding, metabolism and even digestion.
- Sloths spend most of their lives in trees but do crawl down to the forest floor about once a week to poop!
- A sloth’s fur is home to insects, fungi, algae and who knows what else. Algae helps the sloth be camouflaged from predators.
- Sloths are surprisingly good swimmers and will swim long distances in rivers to find a mate.
- Sloths are thought to have arrived shortly after the dinosaurs disappeared. Despite their slow lifestyle, they must be doing something right to have survived this long!
In conclusion, maybe we should be more like the sloth. So, slow down, play nicely with algae and insects who just need a place to live, and eat more leafy greens and fruit!
