Linné’s two-toed sloths live in the trees in tropical and cloud forests of Central and South America. They make their way along branches slowly but surely, hanging by their 3- to 4-inch-long curved claws. Their slow-motion lifestyle has a lot to do with the relatively low nutritional value of what they eat—mostly leaves, stems, buds, and some fruit—which they digest slowly through a large, four-chambered stomach, like a cow. At the Zoo, guests can occasionally see two-toed sloth wildlife ambassadors making special appearances.
