SlothsBook - 2005
The slowest mammals in the world, sloths are found in the tropical forests of Central and South America. Hanging upside down by their long-clawed arms these strange looking animals survive by moving at night and so slowly that they escape the notice of their predators. Although sloths avoid these natural predators, humans are destroying their habitats and their lives. Book jacket.
