Sloth Behavior


Sloths are solitary, arboreal and nocturnal mammals. Sloths are strictly herbivores. They eat leaves, flowers, buds, plants and insects, but do not drink water. Sloths get water from eating juicy leaves and licking dewdrops. These animals spend 16-18 hours a day sleeping. Sloths are extremely slow moving animals. Predators include large snakes, jaguars and ocelots.
