How Many Babies Does a Sloth Give Birth To and Where Do Sloths Live?

A sloth gives birth to just one offspring per litter.

The baby clings to its mother until it is old enough to take care of itself.

The Maned Three-Toed Sloth is classified as endangered, and the ongoing destruction of South America’s forests may soon prove a threat to other sloth species.

Sloth have a unique fur and the outer hairs grow in a direction opposite from that of other mammals.

Sloths can be found in the rainforests of Central and South America.
