Hoffmann’s Two-toed Sloth

This mythical creature dwells in the pristine and disturbed forests of Central and South America. This shy furball is a nocturnal mammal that munches on its favorite tree called the Cecropia. The critter may seem like a harmless soul, but it is an aggressive living entity that can do some grave damage with its claws. The second laziest and the world’s slowest, the sloth is yet a relative to anteaters and armadillos. In Costa Rica, these beings are outnumbered by the three-toed sloths four to one. The elusive Harpy eagles thrive on these innocent sloths, but due to habitat destruction, the Harpy eagles are critically endangered. The wet rag spends up to twenty hours dozing in the viridescent forest. We shall leave it in peace.
