Animals on earth the Slow sloth of its kind

Sloth, just the sound of it sounds strange. How strange is the world we live in?  What is a sloth? What is the meaning of a sloth? How did this name come about? Different parts of our lives have been taken with many untold events such that when they come to the limelight, there is always a different story to share. 

The sloth is just one of the mammals of the rain-forest. If you are lucky to spot a sloth in its natural habitat, you will be perplexed in the first place as to how complex the sloth is in its movement as compared to many other land mammals. Just like the Kangaroo and the other apes, the baby sloth acts in similar way the way the baby sloth will cling to its mother on its belly for months to come until lit gets all the vitality to be on its own. With little known about the sloth in many of the urbanity the people who live around the rainforest are very accustomed to the different types of sloth in their natural habitat and there are many people who have taken a step forward to taming the sloth and even have sloths as pets. There are sloth breeders and to a very large extent sloth on sale are just another way of earning some people a living while in real sense getting the right living condition in captivity is just left for nature to handle this maturing of the sloth in their own natural heritage

Given the abundance of flora and fauna in many of our natural habitat, many nice adorable animals have either gone extinct while some have found refuge in dolls or just part of the media games which have all the animal animation and sound effects. Just as all the dangerous animals are always reigning terror in many parts of the world, the Big Five are always on the fore front while the grizzlies bears and the white sharks follow soon not forgetting some of the venomous snake, the giant tarantulas and the imperial scorpions of Africa.

But when it comes to some of the most exotic animal species, the rare animals which are only found in the deep forest of the Amazon and the rainforest of South America, its more than impossible for one to see them unless their cable operator is there to let them have a glimpse of their favorite program in the national geographical channel, animal planet and discovery just to mention a few. 
The sloth just like the slow Loris is no doubt the world's slowest animal or mammal you can ever think of. The sloth with its slow movements lives up to its name such that algae of different kinds depending on its animal habitat will find ways to grow on its furry coat. You might be wondering what happened to the coat of the sloth on the back. The sloth  and all the sloth pictures which have been taken or sloth movies which a have been produces show one and the same thing about the sloth. Well the big patch explains all the mystery of the sloth not having part of the body amour it needs just because of its slowness. The big variegated parth on the back of the sloth has worked for the sloth and at the same time has been a symbiotic process for the entire species of the sloth in the rain-forest and around the world.
Sloths like apes who have gone astray
One should be wondering what the green coloring on the back of the sloth should be doing. The plants which grow on its back gives it a greenish tint depending on the color of the sloth itself which is a plus point while out in the wilderness with different predators both big and small looking for the latest creature to feed on not forgetting humans who have been wiping these beautiful animals up to near extinction not just for their meat but for medicinal reasons, cultural and with reasons best known to them. The greenish plants don't have roots that grow deep inside the sloth but just on the surface and what a beautiful how the sloth blends with nature without making any changes to it. If people would go green well not with the extent of not taking a shower just because the sloth are doing it in the rain-forest but not to upset our natural environment, the sloth would be the forerunners in the campaign of saving the rain forest oandall the endangered exotic rare animal species as well.

Have you even wondered what you would do with only three fingers? Like many of the different land mammals which have paws and sharp claws designed for protection holding grabbing digging fighting for their natural survival, our friend the rare exotic anima  pale-throated sloth is found only in the tropical forests of northern South America, including Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, western Venezuela and Colombia, and Brazil north of the Amazon River. Having your first glance at such an animal would make you think otherwise the idea of Aliens, Androids, puppets or the slowest animals on earth the slow sloth will not have been in your medulla oblongata had you not been able to see such a beautiful creature

The slow sloth are mostly recognized and identified by the number of long sharp, prominent claws that they have on each front foot or paws. The ones which are available in different parts of the world are the two-toed sloths and three-toed sloths. Sloths are always a babe in the woods and forest full of green lush leaves and buds are their favorite places to make their homes and where not if not at the treetops. These creatures have very good strength when it comes to holding and clinging on to branches. Just like many of the apes and monkeys, sloths use most of their lifetime alone hanging from one branch to another

Clinging for life after death
Just like a drowning man catches the straw, with no water to cling on in demes of desperate measures or when their days are numbered, these sloths will cling to a branch and hold it while it’s dead and remain suspended for as long as the body decomposes. If nature has a way of taking care of itself, some things are just left the way they are and trying to understand the mysteries of nature is a sea of knowledge which will never end.
