Linnaeus's Two-Toed Sloth (Choloepus didactylus)

Scaled collection of drawings of Linnaeus's Two-Toed Sloth in various poses with dimensions

A dominant character of Linnaeus’s Two-toed Sloth (Choloepus didactylus) is its slowness. It is found in most countries in South America. It is also called the Linne’s two-toed sloth, unau, or southern two-toed sloth, preferring tropical rainforest with dense foliage. Physically, it has a short neck and four equally long limbs with curved claws. The head is short and flat, eyes large, ears rudimentary, and nose snub. The hair is long and brownish-gray with grooves that collect algae, giving it a greenish tint. Females give birth to live offspring and take part in maternal care. These nocturnal animals primarily do most of their activities hanging upside down.

The Linnaeus's Two-Toed Sloth has a body length in the range of 21.25”-34.6” (54-88 cm) and total weight of 8.8-24.3 lb (4-11 kg). The Linnaeus's Two-Toed Sloth has a body height between 6.3”-10.2” (16-26 cm), body width of 7.1”-11.8” (18-30 cm), and tail length of .4”-1.2” (1-3 cm). The typical lifespan of the Linnaeus's Two-Toed Sloth is between 20-40 years.

Sloths, or Folivora, are arboreal mammals endemic to the tropical rainforest of Central and South America. They are sluggish, preferring to spend time on trees with dense foliage, which is their primary diet. There are two species: two and three-toed sloths.
