Did you know?

Sloths have such a slow metabolism that they only defecate (poo) once a week!

Linne’s Two-toed Sloth

Choloepus didactylus

Sloths are related to armadillos and anteaters (Order Xenartha) and are solitary and mainly nocturnal. Unlike most mammals their fur grows downwards and is also grooved, allowing algae to collect and grow - giving the sloth a perfect green camouflage!



Size Head-body length: 46-86cm
Weight: 4.1-9kg



This species of sloth is found in tropical rainforests in northern South America. They are arboreal, spending most of their time up in the trees - in fact they only come down to change feeding trees or to defecate!



They feed mainly on leaves, fruits and small twigs. They possess cellulose-digesting bacteria in their multi-chambered stomachs, which aids their slow digestion!



As well as eating, sleeping and mating – these sloths actually give birth hanging upside down! Females will have one young after around a 6 month pregnancy.



Two-toed sloths are not considered to be endangered as many are found in protected areas. They are also not usually hunted for the bushmeat trade as they are found very high in the forest canopy.
