There are six species of sloth, they come in two varieties: Two Toed and Three Toed Sloths Contrary to popular belief captive sloths typically sleep for 15 to 20 hours per day, while wild sloths rarely rest for more than 10 hours Most sloths will occupy several trees during their lifetime, but some, including the three-toed species, may spend their entire lives in the tree they were born in
Two-toed sloths are omnivorous, meaning they can consume plants and animals. Brazil's rapidly shrinking Atlantic Forest, is classified as vulnerable to extinction and the pygmy three-toed sloth, found only on Panama's Escudo Island, is classified as criti- cally endangered. Sloths are considered the world's slowest animal. They creep at such a slow pace that algae grows on their fur. All mammals, from humans to giraffes, have seven vertebrae in their necks — except for sloths and manatees. Two-toed sloth species have between five and seven neck ver- tebrae, while three-toed sloths have eight or nine. Having a few extra neck vertebrae allows three-toed sloths to rotate their heads up to 270 degrees.
