So I have recently come back from my 6 week adventure through Central America (lots more posts to come!). Something I was particularly excited for was the chance to see Sloths in Costa Rica! Some I saw in the wild and some I saw at rehabilitation sanctuarys.
They have hollow bones to make them lighter so it’s easy for them to climb trees
They poop once a week
They’re very good swimmers
They have beetles, moths and algae that live in their fur to help them camouflage
Their ancestors lived on the ground in North America and were as big as elephants
