Did you know that sloths cannot walk and use their arms to drag their bodies?
...Or that one three-fingered sloth species can turn their head 300 degrees?
...Or that three-fingered sloths are excellent swimmers, moving faster in water than on land!
...Or that they only poop once a week!
...Or that all mammals have 7 cervical vertebrae except for the two-fingered sloth, the three-fingered sloth and the manatee!
Sloths are extremely unique and adorable slow-moving animals. There are two species of sloths, Bradypus (three-fingered sloth) and the Choloepus (two-fingered sloth) classified into 6 species. Although similar looking to those unfamiliar with the animal, these two sloths are vastly different in biological characteristics and behavior.
The Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica has pioneered sloth research, education and rehabilitation, and is the world's only sloth sanctuary! Here at Little Critterz, we support those animal advocates who champion awareness and care for the world's diverse animals.
It's your lucky day... We have decided to donate to The Sloth Sanctuary and want to give YOU a FREE Sloth Sanctuary 'Keep Calm and Hang On' tee-shirt and magnet!
