Sloths are one of my favorite animals. They are adorable, slow-moving mammals native to Central and South America. They are solitary mammals and just so happen to provide a habitat for a multitude of other organisms like moths, beetles, cockroaches, fungi, and algae.

Sloths may be slow-moving and clumsy on land but they are good swimmers.

Sloths spend most of their time in trees and are nocturnal animals. In the wild sloths usually sleep no more than 10 hours a day. They are solitary animals and gather only to mate. Sloths can live up to 40 years.
