Two-Toed sloths are built for life in the treetops. Sloths spend almost all of their time in the trees. They sleep for about 15-20 hours every day. Sloths eat leaves, shoots, and fruit during the night.Juicy plants give the sloths almost all of their water.
Sloths have no protection on land. They have weak hind legs so they have to use their long claws to dig into the ground and pull themselves forward. If caught on land by a predator, they have to defend themselves by biting and clawing. Going on land is their weakness.
The sloth is the world's slowest mammal.The algae that grows on it's coat gives it a greenish tint that helps with camouflage. They usually live in Central and South American Rainforests at the tops of trees. They eat leaves, shoots, and juicy plants. They are defenseless on land, but in water they are fast enough to escape predators.
Sloths are good swimmers.
Sloths are identified by the amount of claws/toes they have.

The unique pattern looks like a happy face.It is unique because this pattern is not found on any other animal or insect.According to "Hawaii's Endangered Happy Face Spider", it says, "The marks resemble two circles that look like eyes.There is a curved shaped below, similar to a smile."I found this on paragraph 2, lines 2-3
Some live in Panama
They have greenish fur
They are very slow
They can move as fast as you can walk fast when they need to
Some scientists believe that the strange markings warn predators. Although, not all scientists believe this. According to the text,"Hawaii's Endangered Happy Face Spider" it says, "Some scientists think the spider developed these strange markings as a way to warn predators, such as birds. However, not all scientists agree on this theory."Paragraph 3, lines 1-3
This helps the spider because not many animals would look for food there and it makes it hard to locate them. According to the text, "Hawaii's Endangered Happy Face Spider", it states, "It lives it's life on the undersides of leaves, deep in the rainforest. This can make it difficult for scientists to locate and study."Paragraph 4, lines 1-3
