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.
