"Sloths are the world's slowest mammal." Plus, the greenish animal is green because of the algae in their fur! Sloths have long claws, the number of claws determines wither its a two or three toed sloth. Sloths spend a majority of their time in trees sleeping or just hanging around. At night they eat plants "and get almost all their water from juicy plants." Did you know babies spend their first few weeks clinging to their mother? If you think about sloths are always using their front legs climbing trees, so their back legs are weak and it's hard for them to move on land. Though they're pretty great swimmers! Two and three toed sloths are a little bit different but not much different.

There is a unique pattern on the Theridion Grallator's back. "The happy faced spider's name comes from the unique pattern found on its pale-colored back. The marks resemble two circles that look like eyes. There is a curved shape below, similar to a smile." Together these strange markings form a smiley face!
Different scientists believe different things about the strange markings on the happy faced spider's back. "Some scientists think the spider may developed these strange markings as a way to warn predators, such as birds. However, not all scientist agree on this theory. Some believe the features may do nothing to help the spider avoid its enemies.
Living on the undersides of leaves helps the happy face spider to stay out of the limelight. It helps the spider by hiding it. "The happy face spider generally tries to stay out f the limelight. It lives its life on the undersides of leaves, deep in the rainforests. This can make it difficult for scientists to locate and study."
