Two-Toed Sloth

Micah Smith

        Two-toed sloths come from central and South America. They are usually 24 to 30 inches long and weigh 15 to 20 pounds. They get there name from the two claws on their front feet.  They sleep an average of 20 hours a day. They are very slowing moving only two feet a minute. Algae grows in their fur to act as a camouflage since they are so slow and cannot defend themselves.  Their diet usually consists of leaves from the trees they live in!
