Three-toed Sloth with Baby
Three-toed Sloth with Baby - Three-toed sloths spend the majority of their lives high up in trees asleep, in what is believed to be a deliberate attempt to test the patience of wildlife photographers. This lethargic lifestyle results from their chosen diet: sloths eat leaves and almost nothing else. Such a diet yields very little energy to the animal and so it must compensate by slowing down its metabolism and moving around only when necessary.
