Daily ‘Cute’ Fix – Baby Sloths [VIDEO]
Is there anything cuter than baby animals? Nope! These baby Sloths though are the cutest. I needed a “cute” fix and thought you would like it too.
Watching this video made want to learn more about these “odd” creatures so I went researching and here is what I found.
From Cal Tech
Sloths are extremely slow-moving mammals found in the rainforest canopies of Central and South America. Some sloths stay in the same tree for years. Their huge hooked claws and long arms allow them to spend most of their time hanging upside-down from trees. Since they have a slow metabolism, they need very little food. They feed on fruit, leaves, buds, and young twigs. Sloths are nocturnal and sleep curled up with their head placed between the arms and the feet drawn close together. This disguises them as part of a tree so that its enemies like the jaguar do not see them. Sloths rarely climb down from the trees and can live for up to 30 years.
