Just two toes

My country has lots of sloths. No, I am not talking about bureaucrats here (eye-rolling), but about members of the Megalonychidae family. The one you see in the first picture is a Choloepus didactylus

The one you see next is a Choloepus hoffmani. It also has two toes but it is a quite different species, it is half-blond. Other species like the Brown-throated sloths I posted two years ago have three toes.
