Toes of a Three Toad Sloth

Telling two-toed and three-toed sloths apart is easy: just count the toes! This three-toed sloth is using his long claws to hang from a branch, probably catching a nap after an exhausting day of sleeping.

Two-toed and three-toed sloths differ in more than just the number of toes. Two-toed sloths are more often nocturnal, with bigger eyes and a longer coat. Three-toed sloths can also be recognized by the black marks around their eyes.
