Some people are very fast and energetic and some are slow and relaxed. You can be slow & relaxed but you cannot do it as cool as a sloth does. Sloths are popularly known for being slow, relaxed and to look extremely cool while being so. This set of animals are so cool that they are being loved by almost everyone in the world and also have been included in entertainment productions, such as “Ice Age” & “Zootopia”.
They are loved and given so much attention to them that they have their own ‘International Sloth Day’, which is on the 21 of October! Sloths do deserve a day of their own to be recognized for the cute creatures they are. The slow movement, the awesome-looking hair, huge claws, and the relaxed-sleepy mood that you and I both wish we could live in, how awesome is that?
You might think that you are a lazy person who moves very slow. But are you really? Do you move that slow so that algae and fungus grow on you? It does on Sloths’ fur and some of them are known to be cancer-curing! So, these slow vibing animals are more important than you think they are.
The Sloth Institute has established itself to study these amazing animals and their lives. The researchers of this institute have found that Sloths are an important element to the ecosystems. They play a huge part in some of the seed dispersion and also for the dispersing of smaller insects & micro-organisms across the jungle. Their slow movement allows algae to grow on their fur and that too gets to travel to a wider range of distance. Sloths can be slow, but when compared with algae, they are very fast.
Sadly, there is quite a set of setbacks being a sloth. The speed of the sloth makes it almost impossible to evade an attack and escape a predator. However, their speed sometimes advantages them in being camouflaged in the jungle, so that attract less attention to themselves.
These animals are really adorable and amazing. They are articles and photos of them, found in various places on the internet. So, we decided to gather some pictures of these cool creatures for you. Scroll down to check them out!
