These slow, shy animals are more than cute images to put on t-shirts and socks. Let’s learn about sloths!
They live in the tropical rainforests of Central and South America.
Sloths spend most of their time in the tops of trees, sleeping — about 15 hours a day!
Momma sloths only have one baby at a time.
Some of the six species of sloths are threatened because of deforestation.
They are related to armadillos and anteaters.
They’re quite good swimmers!
They navigate their world mostly by touch as their sight and hearing are not great.
