Feeling lazy this summer?  Consider these fun facts about the world's slowest animal – the sloth.

  • 1. Sloths can sleep from 15-20 hours per day.
  • 2. Sloths only go to the bathroom about once a week.
  • 3. Some sloths can turn their heads almost all the way around.
  • 4. Sloths might not run, but they are very good swimmers.
  • 5. Two-Toed sloths actually have 3 toes on each back leg.

Learn more fun facts or read some wonderful stories about these curious (but extremely cute) creatures.
