Pygmy Three-toed Sloth

cesloth-610x407
The pygmy three-toed sloth is the smallest and rarest member of the sloth family, found only on the isolated Caribbean island of Isla Escudo de Veraguas. With a body suited for climbing as well as swimming, the pygmy sloth is well suited for life among the mangrove forests it calls home. Still, like many tree dwelling animals, the species is at risk to the deforestation and destruction of their habitat.
