Sloths spend their lives in the tropical rain forests in Central and South America. They move through the canopy at a rate of about 40 yards per day, munching on leaves, twigs and buds. Sloths have an exceptionally low metabolic rate and spend 15 to 20 hours per day sleeping. And surprisingly enough, the long-armed animals are excellent swimmers. They occasionally drop from their treetop perches into water for a paddle.
There are two different types of sloths, two-toed and three-toed, and six species. Of those, the pygmy sloth is critically endangered and the maned sloth is vulnerable.
