About Me

Scientific Name Choloepus didactylus

Description

Sloths have long tan, gray, or brown fur. During the rainy season their fur appears bluish green due to a blue-green algae that covers their coat. The algae helps to further camouflage the sloth from predators, such as the jaguar, while they are in the rain forest canopy. Sloths spend almost their entire lifespan hanging upside down from a tree limb.

Fun Facts

  • Sloths spend almost their entire lifespan hanging upside down from a tree limb.
  • Their legs are long and they have very short tails. In fact, the Linne’s two-toed sloth has no tail at all!
