Deeter Digs Sloths


What is a sloth?

A sloth is a freaking adorable, long-armed, fuzzy, sluggish creature that just does not care much for physical activity.

How many types of sloths are there?

There are two types of sloths: two-toed and three-toed

How many species of sloths are there?

There are six types of sloths, though they are all adorable….I have ranked them from cutest to least-cutest (ugliest):

First Place: Pygmy Sloth (3 toes): there is no doubt that this is the cutest sloth. I mean, look at it.

Pygmy Sloth... the cutest sloth.
This sloth has three toes! Wow.

Second Place: Hoffman’s Two-Toed Sloth: Cute face…not as cute as the Pygmy though.

I want to be this sloth right now.

Tied for Third: Brown-Throated Sloth AND Pale-Throated Sloth (3 toesies): Because who are we to judge a sloth based on their throat color?

And Last Place: Linnaeus’s Two-Toed Sloth and Maned Sloth: Because I can’t decide which one is uglier…they both receive last place.

In Conclusion:

Sloths are straight chillers. Some are so ugly that they are cute. They are lazy and do not give a dang. We should all have a little sloth in us. What’s your favorite sloth?
