Sloths, the slowest mammals on earth, are a group of arboreal Neotropical xenarthran mammals, constituting the suborder Folivora. Noted for their slowness of movement, they spend most of their lives hanging upside down in the trees of the tropical rainforests of South America and Central America. Sloths bear the scientific name of Choloepus hoffmanni. Distant cousins in the sloth superorder Xenarthra include anteaters and armadillos. Three-toed sloths are the most numerous of the two-toed and three-toed sloths. The average sloth is 58-68cm long and weighs between 9 and 17 pounds(7.71 kg)
Pet sloths would be the most adorable, furry, and just straight-up cute companions you could ever have for a pet. Not only are they adorably clumsy, but they are also super lazy and love to take naps and sleep most of the time. In scientific terms, there is no name for a baby sloth. Because sloths live in solitude, there is no formal collective noun for them, and they are a rare sight.
