Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth (Bradypus pygmaeus)

Set of scaled side and front drawings of the Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth

The Pygmy Three-toed Sloth (Bradypus pygmaeus) prefers coastal and red mangrove habitats. This is in the Isle Escudo de Veraguas. Being that it is arboreal, it feeds mainly on leaves and is very good at climbing trees. This is made possible by its large curved claws and limbs adapted to hanging. It is also called dwarf sloth or monk sloth. It has a buff-colored face, fur in clay-orange, and long and bushy hair on the head and shoulders, although facial hair is shorter. Females show great parental care. This sloth is solitary, prefers sedentary life, and is most active during the day.

The Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth has a body length in the range of 17.3”-20.9” (44-53 cm) and total weight of 5.5-7.7 lb (2.5-3.5 kg). The Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth has a body height between 4.7”-5.5” (12-14 cm), body width of 5.9”-6.7” (15-17 cm), and tail length of 1.6”-2.4” (4-6 cm). The typical lifespan of the Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth is between 30-40 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.
