Happy International Sloth Day! It’s a great day to celebrate these super special animals! Come learn some fun facts and check out these super cute sloth faces!

  • Sloths sleep up to 20 hours a day.
  • Sloths live in the rainforests of South and Central America.
  • Sloths are related to armadillos and anteaters.
  • Sloths have algae that grow on their fur; it helps them camouflage in the trees.

  • They are herbivores.
  • Sloths only go on the ground about once a week and they do that to poop and pee.
  • Sloths are great swimmers!

  1. I think sloths are so cool. They are in a hurry to do nothing, and yet they always seem so happy and content. Maybe we should aspire to be more like sloths.

  2. I did not know sloths were such great swimmers.
