Family - Bradypodidae
Three-toed sloths are about the size of a small dog or a large cat. They have a body length of around 45 centimeters. They weigh 3.5–4.5 kilograms. They also have a short tail of 6 – 7 centimeters. They have three clawed toes on each limb. They are frequently referred to as three-toed sloths. They move between different trees up to four times a day, although they prefer to keep to a particular type of tree. The three-toed sloth, unlike most other mammals, does not fully maintain a constant body temperature, and this limits it to warm environments. Members of this species tend to live around 25 to 30 years, reaching sexual maturation at 2 years of age.
