Three-toed Sloth nourishing a tree, Costa Rica – Photo by Kevin Schafer @schaferpho @natgeo. Sometimes witnessing a rare – or particularly bizarre -- natural event can cloud a person’s judgment. How else can I justify my irrational excitement at stumbling onto a wild three-toed sloth going to the toilet? Let me explain. Sloths are residents of the rain forest canopy, where they while away their slow-paced lives feeding on an endless banquet of leaves. Leaves, however, are not the most…

PHOTO OF THE DAY - Hoffmann's two-toed sloth hanging with two-month-old baby, Costa Rica. For the first 3-8 months of a baby sloth’s life, it clings to its mother, even after it has been weaned. While holding onto her young, a female sloth will hiss and swipe their long claws at a potential predator, in order to keep her baby safe.

Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja) - Panama; has a wingspan of up to 7 ft and talons that can grow as big as grizzly bear paws; it can swoop up to 50 mph. Literally eats sloths and monkeys for breakfast. Each nestring pair of harpy eagles requires about 7sq mi of rainforest in which to hunt, so they're not getting enough to eat these days.

Get enough sleep?  Sloth bears can shift their #sleepcycle to adapt to the environment. They can be on a nocturnal, #diurnal or crepuscular schedule depending on the circumstances. Other bears, people or predators in the area can influence their sleep pattern. Sloth bears are usually awake and active for about eight to 14 hours each day.  #bears #animallovers #themoreyouknow #slothbear #tired #adorable

The sloth saves energy by moving very slowly.... It is so light that other predators cannot get to the upper branches where it hangs #jungle #sloth #animals
