SLOTHS

Sloths are Cool!

Sloths:

1. The sloth’s hairy body has developed a deep groove that serves as the habitat for colonies of symbiotic algae that can turn the sloth’s fur green during the rainy season to help it camouflage with its environment.

2. They have a very low metabolism and have to eat a lot to get the nutrients their body needs.

3. They can turn their necks up to 270 degrees around in either direction because they have up to three extra vertebrae than two-toed sloths.

4. Sloths are called“nature’s brother-in-law.”
