Description: The Linne’s two-toed sloth is one of the world’s slowest mammals—so sedentary that algae grows on its furry coat. The plant gives it a greenish tint that is useful camouflage in the trees of its Central and South American rainforest home. Sloths are identified by the number of long, prominent claws that they have on each front foot. There are both two-toed and three-toed sloths.

Our Animals: Lola, Tofu, Lily, Lenny, Tempo, and Miso. Some of these sloths are also Ambassador Animals.
