Have you heard of the phrase ‘lazy as a sloth’? If you haven’t then let us tell you, sloth is the slowest and laziest animal present on earth.🌍

They are found in the rainforest canopies of Central and South America. (Panama, Colombia, Brazil; Globe🌍 time!!!) Their average lifespan is 10 to 15 years and up to 31 years in captivity.

The sloths’ diet, consisting mainly of leaves,🍃 provides them with very little energy and nutrition. This is why they move very slowly to conserve the energy in their body.

Fun Facts

👉 The sloth takes about 25-30 days to digest one leaf.

👉 Sloths move slightly quicker on trees, 3 meters per minute, than on ground (2 meters per minute).

👉 They spend most of their time on trees and they only descend to the forest floor to poop, which they do about once a week.

👉 Sloths can extend their tongues 10 to 12 inches out of their mouths.
