Sloths

SLOTHS are tree-dwelling mammals found in the jungles of Central and South America. Sloths grasp the branches with the help of their long claws, a trait they share with armadillos and anteaters (their closest living relatives).

Their diet of leaves provides little nutrition and as a consequence they are extremely slow moving. It can take over a month for the leaves in a sloth's stomach to digest. Bath Time for Baby Sloths.
