Continuing with my series of some of the Rainforest animals.
They are all so beautiful and deserve to live and be shared.
If you missed the first three posts of the series you can see them here:
4. Brown-Throated Three-Toed Sloth
This cat-sized mammal, typically weighing 8 – 9 pounds, has a round head, a short snout, small eyes, long legs, tiny ears and a stubby tail. Sloths have long, coarse fur that is light brown in color, but often appears green due to the blue-green algae that grow there. Instead of toes, their front and hind feet have three curved claws that allow them to easily hook onto tree branches and hang upside-down.
Sloths can rotate their heads nearly 90 degrees, and their mouths are shaped so they look like they are always smiling. Males are distinguishable from females because they usually have a bright yellow or orange patch of fur located between their shoulders.
Brown-Throated Three-Toed Sloth ~ Amazing right!
