Sloths go to the bathroom once a week!

  • They have a very low metabolism and have to eat a lot to get the nutrients their body needs. Since it takes so long for a sloth to digest the food it eats, it only urinates or defecates about once a week, usually during the few times it leaves the tree.
  • Sloths defecate and urinate at the same place every time and because of this they are vulnerable to predators.
