Sloth claws are no joke! A common misconception is sloths are always calm – Nope!

 

Sloth claws are no joke! ⚠️ A common misconception is sloths are always calm and docile, in reality they can be dangerous. Sloths claws are around 4inches in length and very strong, enabling then to hang from trees all day and also defend themselves if necessary ! 💪🏼
.
Keeping in mind sloths have very advanced predators such as Harpy eagles, 🦅 jaguars (who have one of the stongest bites in the animal kingdom) and even anacondas! 🐍 Now knowing all this I guess being slow and and methodical doesn’t seem lazy at all, infact it’s a survial mechanism.

If you encounter a sloth keep your distance! Unless it is injuried or in immediate danger there isn’t any reason to touch the animal or get too close.👍🏼

people who work with sloths would understand the body language of this guy which says “go away” 🙄 I’ll never understand why people have to go so close to wild animals 🤦🏻‍♀️
