A Sloth Plush
Sloths are known for their slowness and for their big, friendly smile that they keep in all circumstances like stuffed toys. Today, six species of sloths are still alive despite the deforestation that is taking their toll on them. These species are divided between the two-toed and three-toed sloths.
You can find these arboreal mammals in Central America and South America in the canopy of tropical forests. They almost always hang upside down in trees and go to the ground only to relieve themselves. When on the ground, the sloth is very vulnerable to its predators.
10,000 years ago, giant sloths still roamed our planet. They could measure up to 3 meters in length and weigh more than 300 kilograms. Today, sloths weigh up to 10 kg and are a maximum of 75 centimeters long. If you buy a soft toy measuring more than 50 centimeters, you will almost have a real sloth in your home!
