PPG loves Sloths !

A baby sloth and his favorite environment,
from a tv reportage.

Unable to survive outside the tropical rainforests of South and Central America,
within that environment sloths are outstandingly successful creatures:
they can account for as much as half the total energy consumption
and two-thirds of the total terrestrial mammalian
biomass in some areas.
Of the six living
species, only one, the Maned Three-toed Sloth
Bradypus torquatus), has a classification of "endangered" at present.
The ongoing destruction of South America's forests, however, may soon
prove a threat to other sloth species.
