These slow moving, peaceful creatures can be found in the forests of South America.

What do sloths eat?

Sloths are classed as herbivores. Their diet consists mainly of leaves but occasionally they will eat fruit and they have been known to eat bird’s eggs, lizards and insects. In the wild, they live in the rainforest, so have access to a wide range of trees and plant species. At Folly Farm, our sloths eat a lot of vegetables and are particularly fond of asparagus and baby corn!

Do sloths have any predators?

They do. They include anacondas, harpy eagles, ocelots and jaguars.

Why are sloths still for so long?

It's due to their low energy diet. They try to save what little energy they have. They do this by moving very slowly and deliberately. And by sleeping up to 15 hours a day!

Why are sloths so slow?

In a tree, they move at about three metres per minute, but on the ground, it's a little slower at only two metres per minute. They're actually quite dangerous because their claws are razor sharp, but they're not likely to catch you.

How much does it cost to adopt a sloth?

An adopt a sloth pack costs just £29 and includes an adoption certificate, a cuddly sloth, a sloth fact sheet and your name displayed at our sloth enclosure.

Although listed as least concern, there is a decrease in numbers in the wild. This is mainly due to the destruction of their natural habitat. It's actually quite difficult to get a real idea of numbers in the wild, as sloths and people have very little contact.

They get their name from the two large claws on their forelimbs. These can grow up to 7.5 cm in length. The claws have a super strong grip and some sloths have been known to remain hanging from the trees long after death!

They are unique in the animal world in that they do spend most of their life upside down. They eat, sleep and even give birth upside down and because of this, their internal organs have actually re-positioned over a period of time.

Hello everyone, I'm Hoff's cohost, the Green Lantern. Our special guests today are Dr. Fauci, and Bernie Sanders...

(( roll show's theme music ))

msbonne

Was that a talk show?

Hello, and welcome to Not Talking Pistachios.

robf

Mischka, could you tag me from another puzzle please... all I see that I did was respond to Donnajames' "not talking pistachios".
Curious whilst patient, - rob

Donnajames

Poor Hoff, he's too slow to duck out of the way. Should we get him some bubble wrap? That should keep him occupied for a while popping the bubbles! lol

Mischka

Brazils? @robf I see what you did there :-)

robf

Hoff, if John shows up then you definitely may be insulted.
Prepare physical or mental body armour in advance.

Donnajames

Hey, who's throwing the nuts around!!!

msbonne

OUCH!!

Mischka

I'm ready for some pistachios. Yum [crunch, crunch, crunch].

msbonne

I think I may be insulted.

robf

Brazils?

Donnajames

You two are ready for the 'nut farm'! And I am not talking pistachios!

robf

E.g. Marcel Marceau in "Silent Movie"

msbonne

You should really get a braille ready tv. I find mute people have the hardest accents to understand.

Mischka

It's perfectly restored, and I thank you for your encouragement. Braille doesn't "do" sound, but I use captioning. Very useful for bizarre accents as in... well, say, "Fawlty Towers," or people who say "whilst."

msbonne

What about sound? Does your tv do braille?

Mischka

As a matter of fact, a few minutes ago I DID inch-squinch a bookcase out, and unplugged/replugged, and now I have a picture! Yay me!

msbonne

Why not just feel behind tv, unplug at the tv, then plug back in?

Mischka

No [stamping foot], I'm gonna do the usual thing and reboot. Meaning, haul one of the small bookcases away from the wall and unplug/replug. My arm is hurting too much now, but I'll fix the damn thing.

Lol, you'd think I'd never heard of radio dramas. But I think seeing the characters is kinda essential to "OB."

msbonne

Perhaps you can imagine it whilst listening.

Mischka

Hoff, you're back! Sorry I missed you.

I'm having yet more electronic problems. My TV's audio is on but there's no visual. TG I was able to watch the Belmont, but it went black after that, and I've no idea what to do.

Even if the DVD player is fixed, I won't be able to see "Orphan Black"!

Mischka

Donnajames

msbonne

Wasabi?

Donnajames

It's green stuff that you eat!!!

msbonne

What is this "salad" that you speak of?

Donnajames

I'll send the salad! :-))

msbonne

YeeHaw.

Mischka

One sizzling steak, coming up!

msbonne

I try to keep EVERYBODY up to date with FACTS.

Mischka

Okay, good. As these are Facts For Kids, we don't want the poor little dears to grow up with misinformation!

Mischka

If he tries that, I'll interrupt his sleep by shouting "PATIENT!"
