A list of my favorite images of sloths.
Sloths are medium-sized mammals belonging to the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, classified into six species. They are part of the order Pilosa and are therefore related to anteaters, which sport a similar set of specialized claws.
Extant sloths are arboreal (tree-dwelling) residents of the jungles of Central and South America, and are known for being slow-moving, and hence named "sloths". Extinct sloth species include many ground sloths, some of which attained the size of elephants.
Sloths make a good habitat for other organisms and a single sloth may be home to moths, beetles, cockroaches, ciliates, fungi and algae.
