Hoffmann’s Two-Toed Sloths

“Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni) is a species of sloth from Central and South America.

Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth is a heavily built animal with shaggy fur and slow, deliberate movements.

The forefeet have only two toes, each ending with long, curved claws, although three clawed toes are on each of the hind feet.” – Source: Wikipedia.org

Linnaeus’s Two-Toed Sloth

“Linnaeus’s two-toed sloth (Choloepus didactylus), also known as the southern two-toed sloth, unau, or Linne’s.

The two-toed sloth is a species of sloth from South America, found in Venezuela, the Guyanas, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil north of the Amazon River.

There is no evidence suggesting the species’ range expands into Bolivia.” Wikipedia.org

Sloths move very slowly to prevent being seen by their natural predators, like eagles and jaguars that are always on the lookout for moving prey.

The sloth’s slow movements have become a natural defense against these and other predators.
