Three-toed Sloth

The Slowest Mammal On Earth

Did you know that the three-toed sloth emits a long, high-pitched call that echoes through the forests as “ahh-eeee.” Because of this cry these sloths are sometimes called ais (pronounced “eyes”).

Did you also know that three-toed sloths also have an advantage that few other mammals possess: They have extra neck vertebrae that allow them to turn their heads some 270 degrees.

On a slightly more technical level, the three-toed sloths are tree-dwelling mammals from South and Central America. They are the single individual of the genus Bradypus and the family Bradypodidae.

There are four sub-species of three-toed sloths, namely the brown-throated sloth, the maned sloth, the pale-throated sloth, and the pygmy three-toed sloth.

One thing I know that you will know, however, every one of these three-toed sloth species are amazingly cute!
