Movement

As you know sloths are very slow their top speed is (15mph). (sloths) They are so slow because they have about half as much muscle tissue, they can move at a higher speed if they are in immediate danger from a predator, but they burn large amounts of energy doing it.( sloths facts sheet)

Diet

Sloths are omnivores they eat leaves most time and flowers and fruit.(sloths) They don't eat that much because they cant digest easily because they have a weak digest system(sloths2)

Reproduction

Sloths do almost everything hanging upside down in trees, including mating. Two types of sloths—two-toed and three-toed—live in Central and South America. They are the slowest mammals on earth, and this sometimes prevents female sloths from meeting their reproductive capacity of one offspring per year.(pets)

Adapation

Some sloths stay in the same tree for years. Their huge hooked claws and long arms allow them to spend most of their time hanging upside-down from trees.
