3-Toed Sloth and Tamarin Monkey The three-toed sloths are aboreal (tree dwelling) mammals from South and Central America. They go to the forest floor once a week to defecate so are usually spotted high up in the canopy on a favored tree for eating their preferred greens. They can be hard to spot! The coarse fur is often a greenish color due to algae growing on it. They certainly can &quot;hang out&quot; using those beautiful long claws.<br />
They are the only members of the genus Bradypus and the family Bradypodidae. This might be the brown-throated sloth being seen in Panama. 3-toed sloth,Bradypus variegatus,Brown-throated sloth,Panama,Sloth Click/tap to enlarge PromotedCountry intro
