Three-toed Sloths

The family Bradypodidae consists of four living species of three-toed sloths including the brown-throated, the maned, the pale-throated and the pygmy three-toed sloth. Although outwardly similar, three-toed sloths are not closely related to the two-toed sloths. As their name suggests, three-toed sloths have an extra claw on their forelimbs that two-toed sloths do not possess. Bradypodids also have a short tail. Native only to the tropical rainforests of South America, these arboreal herbivores are slow moving and unable to regulate body temperature.
