A sweet sloth

The Brown-throated sloth is another mammal that lives in Central and South American countries. I saw it in Venezuela (unfortunately only once).

It sleeps around 20 hours a day, 30% of its weight is muscle (very little for most mammals, but then this is a real sloth) and females attrack males by making sounds like a screaming woman (which I only know from reading it in Wikipedia).
