The Three-toed Sloth (Bradypus variegatus) is the slowest of all land animalsmoving through the branches at one hundredth of a mile per hour! It is among the world's laziest animals, spending three-quarters of its life asleep. It eats only leaves and loves to "hang" out (upside down!) in cercropia trees. Sloths are often seen and are in fact very common. They are hunted for meat, but because they are well-camouflaged, and generally feed high in the canopy, they are difficult to find. Their main predators are eagles, and jaguars will also hunt them.
