We’ve been on a real sloth kick for the past week. They may not be the most common animals you’ve seen, but they sure are friendly. And slow! In fact, they move so slowly that algae grows in their furry coat. But this actually helps them hide in trees where they live! Some sloths sleep up to 20 hours per day. They’re not lazy, they’re just efficient!
You can learn more about our fuzzy friends from this quick PBS documentary. It’s two minutes well spent!
