Hoffman's Two-Toed Sloth
The name "two-toed sloth" erroneously describe the number of toes. They have two fingers in their hands (in the thoracic limbs) and three toes in their feet (in the pelvic limbs). The name "two-toed" sloth is misleading, although widely used. Other distinguishing features include a more prominent snout, longer fur, and the absence of a tail.
I saw this baby sloth at a zoo that I went to specifically because the sloth had just been born and I wanted to see it. It was almost a month old.
Hoffmann's two-toed sloth is a species of sloth from Central and South America. It is a solitary, largely nocturnal and arboreal animal, found in mature and secondary rainforests and deciduous forests. The common name commemorates the German naturalist Karl Hoffmann.
