THUMB ME - Support your local sloth....did you know this about a sloth...
The living sloths are a mere 6 species of medium-sized mammals that live in Central and South America belonging to the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, part of the order Pilosa. Most scientists call the sloth suborder Folivora, while some call it Phyllophaga. Both names mean "leaf-eaters", the first is Latin-, the second Ancient Greek-based.
This article mainly deals with the living tree-dwelling sloths. Until geologically recent times, large ground sloths such as Megatherium lived in South America and parts of North America, but along with many other animals they disappeared immediately after the arrival of humans on the continent. Much evidence suggests that human activity contributed to the extinction of the American megafauna, like that of far northern Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Madagascar. However, simultaneous climate change that came with the end of the last Ice Age may have also played a role in some cases. And of course it must be remembered that most ground sloth lineages were long extinct even before humans settled the Americas

A sloth was walking through the jungle one day when he was set upon by a gang of vicious snails. The snails left him bleeding and confused at the bottom of a tree where several hours later he summoned the strength to go to the police station and report the assault. He was asked by the desk sergeant to describe his attackers. He replied, “I don’t know what they looked like, it all happened so fast.” Unknown"My F$ friend!!"Loyal
