Sloths: The Laziest Animals To Be Known

Sloths are herbivorous mammals that live in Central and South America. The sloth is related to the armadillos and anteaters. The poor armadillos must be wondering how their brothers came to look like monkeys. There are two main species of sloth: the two-toed sloth and the three-toed sloth. The classification should be quite obvious as it is based on how many toes a sloth has on one paw. Sloths are lazy and spend almost 20 hours of sleep per day. Good thing they don't have to go to school. They'd never make it on time. Two-toed sloths like to hang upside-down while sleeping. Three-toed sloths prefer to sit in a fork of a tree. When two-toed sloths wake up, they probably think "Hey, it's a miracle I didn't fall off today!"
