Sloths and how they move!

Sloths don't have a large amount of muscle mass but their sharp claws allow them to hang onto trees when they are sleeping or climbing. They need these sharp claws because they spend 20 hours a day sleeping whilst hanging on a tree. Some scientists have even found dead sloths hanging from trees because there strong claws make them hang on. Slows are one of the slowest creatures on earth, they move about 6-8 feet per minute. They have their claws to hang onto trees they get very sharp and reach up to 4 inches long.
